Employment & Labor Law

The Employment and Labor Group at Fine & Hatfield counsels and represents employers and businesses in all areas of labor and employment law. Our practice is primarily based in Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky, but we handle matters throughout the Midwest and the South, dependent on the needs of our clients. We pride ourselves on offering practical, preventive, and cost-effective advice; however, when the need arises, we vigorously defend the interests of our clients whether at trial, before an administrative body, during labor negotiations, or at arbitration.
