About Nancy

Nancy “Niki” Lubrano has experience in defending against all types of employment claims through trial.  Lubrano defends California employers against single plaintiff claims as well as multiparty and class action claims.

She aggressively defends allegations of wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination, retaliation and breach of contract.  In addition, Lubrano also defends against wage and hour claims whether brought as a putative class action, or on behalf of an individual plaintiff.

Lubrano’s practice strengths include navigating through the difficult procedural hurdles present in class action litigation.  She engages in immediate fact investigation in all types of cases to achieve early case assessment and to position clients for the best possible result in every case.

As part of her client counsel, Lubrano also regularly advises executives and human resources personnel on preventive measures to avoid litigation, as well as navigating complex state and federal employment law.
