About Laura

With more than 20 years of practice focused exclusively on the management side of employment law, Laura L. Saadeh defends employers in disputes and litigation involving claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour violations, wrongful termination, and breach of contract.  She has defended a wide range of clients involving myriad disputes before arbitrators, administrative agencies and in state and federal courts.

Saadeh's practice strengths include defending wrongful termination claims based on public policy and contractual claims.  The early resolution strategies she develops emphasize efficiency and achieving client goals.
