At Rudy, Exelrod, Zieff & Lowe, LLP, we have successfully litigated numerous high-profile sexual harassment cases, achieving multiple seven-figure verdicts and settlements. We have also counseled both men and women who have been sexually harassed at work and were best served by private negotiations that kept their cases confidential.
Leaders In Litigation For Victims Of Harassment And Retaliation
Our lawyers have litigated landmark sexual harassment cases and have successfully vindicated the rights of workers to be free from a hostile work environment, including unwanted sexual advances and "quid pro quo" demands for sexual favors. A few of our attorneys' case successes in this area of employment law include:
- A landmark multimillion-dollar jury verdict — at the time, the largest ever for an individual in a sexual harassment case — that held the world's largest law firm accountable for the acts of one of its partners in a trial televised on Court TV;
- A $3.5 million jury verdict in a sexual harassment case against a major national supermarket chain;
- A jury verdict of $1.6 million plus attorney fees, affirmed on appeal, for a male rental company manager fired after reporting sexual harassment in the workplace; and
- A multimillion-dollar confidential settlement in a sexual harassment case involving the CEO of a publicly traded company.
Our attorneys recognize the sensitivity of sexual harassment cases and consistently approach them with respect for our clients' concerns about their reputations and futures. Our successes include both opposite-sex and same-sex harassment, across a range of industries and many levels of the workforce-management structure. We are also pioneers in litigating international employment cases on behalf of offshore employees who experience sexual harassment while working abroad.
