Ben partners with executives and human resource management to navigate complex employment issues. He enjoys developing strong, collegial relationships with his clients so that he can best understand how to advise them in a way that not only resolves their immediate concerns but also advances their culture and mission. During his time with Harter Secrest & Emery, Ben has had the opportunity to spend extended periods working as de facto in-house employment counsel to multiple international corporations. These experiences have helped Ben to understand that effective legal advice depends on a deep understanding of an organization’s underlying business and mission.

Employment Issues in M&A
Ben has significant experience advising national and international clients on the complex employment issues that arise in connection with mergers and acquisitions. From the early planning stages and throughout each transaction, Ben helps employers to minimize liability and to implement seamless employment transitions.

Advocacy
Ben’s ultimate goal is to keep his clients out of contentious disputes. But when necessary, Ben advocates for his clients in front of numerous administrative agencies, including the Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC), the New York State Division of Human Rights, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Training and Investigations
Ben regularly provides training to executive and employee groups on non-harassment, wage and hour, and other labor and employment issues. He is a fully trained civil rights investigator and conducts on-campus sexual misconduct investigations.
