Theresia is both creative and grounded, and her unconventionality makes her a successful litigator - in court and when resolving a case.
— Top Jury Consultant
We don’t pay for the overhead of extra attorneys on the payroll. Theresia assembles the right team with both in-house and consulting attorneys. Coordination is seamless and responsiveness is immediate.
— National Employer GC
Theresia believes in our decision makers and stand up for the company beyond what we expect of outside counsel. She protects our brand with each filing or statement she makes.
— Financial Services EC
Theresia navigated us through a highly sensitive audit that could have been a PR crisis and I can see we are a stronger company for it. She made it an opportunity to stand behind our company values, reconnecting with our customers and employees.

Some people call me a micromanager, but when Theresia takes on my latest litigation headache, I stop worrying about it.

First and foremost, we are employment lawyers with decades of experience and a track record of success.  

We have done it.  Theresia's team has stood up in courtrooms across the country for companies such as Target Stores, Wal-Mart & Sam’s Club, IBM, Bank of America, Cumulus Media, Hilton Worldwide, Verizon Communications, ARAMARK, General Electric, AstraZeneca, Bridgestone/Firestone, and Lennar.  We are just as honored to serve other employers that may not (yet) be household names.  

Litigation is too late.  A client sitting next to us in court has already lost.  Lost time and money that should be dedicated to meeting business goals.  We keep our clients out of court by obtaining settlement leverage at the demand letter or administrative charge stage.  To prevent conflict with employees in the first place, we provide workable multi-state policies and sensible practices that avoid litigation.  

Small is the new big.  Everyone, big or small, wants to innovate, and being smaller is an advantage when counseling larger employers.  It allows for different approaches, custom solutions, and fresh ideas.  This difference in perspective helps us identify simple solutions to complex matters.  Our model simultaneously allows us to handle a volume of work, including class litigation.  We have long-standing relationships with a battalion of experienced Of Counsel throughout the country  and do not have the overhead that has historically been passed on to the client.  

Our bench is deep.  Though we are based out of Atlanta and San Francisco, many of our nationwide clients count on us to defend their legal rights and business reputations in courtrooms across the country.  We have an extensive network of counsel whom we tap to advise on local rules and political nuances, enabling us to focus on strategy and consistent protection of the brand.  Instead of managing multiple providers, some clients ask us to coordinate litigation strategy and discovery nationwide.

Valuing diversity.  Several clients see working with us as an opportunity to deepen their commitment to employment diversity by supporting businesses that are historically underrepresented in corporate America.  With certification as a Woman-Owned Business, we also qualify as a diversity supplier for companies that invest in formal initiatives to be an inclusive vendor.
