Steptoe & Johnson PLLC has core strengths in labor and employment, business, energy, litigation, and transactional law. We have 370 attorneys and other professionals practicing in more than 40 areas of law serving clients in 15 offices throughout the U.S. Steptoe & Johnson also has the largest labor and employment group in West Virginia. The firm was founded in 1913, in Clarksburg, West Virginia, and since then, we have learned a thing or two about what it takes to meet our clients’ goals. No matter how much we grow, our first priority is building relationships.
Our attorneys represent employers in all aspects of labor and employment law and regularly represent clients in West Virginia state courts, in federal courts, and before governmental administrative agencies, including the EEOC, Department of Labor, OSHA, and the NLRB. Our traditional labor services include support for employers faced with union campaigns and elections, grievance and arbitration proceedings, collective bargaining negotiations, strikes and union contract interpretations.
Our day-to-day counseling and advice include evaluation and discipline, force reductions and restructuring, wage and hour, affirmative action compliance, ERISA and employee benefits issues, and employment policies and procedures of all types. No matter the jurisdiction or issue, our team has one goal in mind - to bring value to our clients by identifying solutions to today’s complex legal problems while carefully considering how our actions today may affect our clients’ businesses in the future.
