Litigation and ADR

We assist clients through all phases of litigation and regularly provide representation at all levels of state and federal courts and administrative agencies. We believe in taking a proactive approach to problems and we work with our clients to put them in the best possible position to succeed. At NMP, we provide a wide range of experience, coupled with a common sense, results-driven approach to litigation and alternate dispute resolution that is both cost-effective and efficient.

The attorneys in our firm litigate cases in virtually every forum that deals with employment or education law disputes. We have experience defending municipalities and school committees in federal court against claims of discrimination, federal wage and hour claims, claims arising under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, and other federal statutory claims. We also have experience litigating matters before state courts and state and federal administrative agencies, including the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Massachusetts Department of Labor Relations, the Commonwealth Employment Relations Board, the Division of Unemployment Assistance, the Civil Service Commission and the Bureau of Special Education Appeals. Our attorneys have represented municipalities in hundreds of cases before arbitrators under labor agreements, and we are experienced in various alternative dispute resolution procedures.
