Neal J. McNamara focuses his employment law practice on both litigation and counseling. He has successfully handled matters involving all major employment-related statutes, including ERISA, Title VII, the ADA, FMLA, and ADEA, as well as state law employment issues, including noncompete and confidentiality agreements. At the same time, a major portion of Neal’s practice is devoted to counseling clients on a wide range of employee issues in order to prevent matters from reaching litigation. He has developed employment handbooks and policies and conducted internal investigations. Neal regularly conducts seminars on employment law topics.
