Discrimination and Harassment

Regardless of how carefully a company may manage personnel risks, at McLane Middleton we recognize that employment lawsuits still occur, and that claims often involve discrimination and harassment issues.

Our accomplished attorneys represent clients on a broad array of such claims in federal and state courts, and before administrative agencies in New England and beyond.

Our lawyers are consistently prepared to help our clients to successfully resolve these claims.

Some samples of our team’s strong track record of discrimination and harassment issues include:

  • Obtaining summary judgment in favor of employers in federal court on claims of race discrimination under Title VII, discrimination claims under the ADA, retaliation claims under Title VII and New Hampshire's anti-discrimination statute, and wrongful termination
  • Persuading the U.S. 1st Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the lower court's granting of summary judgment in favor of an employer dismissing a retaliation claim (Dennis v. Osram Sylvania, Inc., 549 F. 3d 851 (1st Cir. 2008)
  • Convincing a New Hampshire Superior Court jury to find in favor of an employer and to dismiss claims of sexual orientation and gender discrimination following an 11-day trial
