Brock Seraphin is an experienced business and employment litigator and problem solver. He represents clients in a wide variety of matters, finding efficient solutions to legal disputes involving their employees, clients, competitors, and other companies.
I focus my practice on complex commercial disputes and employment litigation. I have significant experience litigating commercial disputes as well as single-plaintiff and class action matters involving tort claims, contract disputes, trade secrets, employee mobility, and discrimination and harassment allegations. I represent entities and individuals from a diverse range of industries in both state and federal court, as well as in arbitration.
In addition to my litigation experience, I serve as a trusted advisor and provide clients with strategic compliance counseling. I counsel clients on personnel issues such as employee hiring, discipline, termination, disability accommodations, and other employee compliance issues. Sensitive to the expense and stresses that litigation imposes on businesses, I help clients identify risks to anticipate and prevent future threats before they ripen into litigation.
Developments in jurisprudence surrounding the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) are impacting the enforceability of arbitration agreements.
