Northern Virginia Gender Discrimination Lawyers

We have experience representing Virginia employees in gender discrimination and glass ceiling discrimination claims.  A glass ceiling generally refers to an unfair, artificial barrier that prevents certain employees (women; people of color; lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, or transgender) from fairly competing for upper management jobs in companies.  In practice, it keeps qualified employees from reaching their full potential and, depending on applicable law, illegally blocks them from occupying the best-paid and most powerful positions.  If you have suffered glass ceiling discrimination, contact us to find out if you may have an actionable claim.

If you are encountering glass ceiling discrimination, call us today for a confidential consultation at 571-288-1309 or 202-262-8959 or write us by clicking here.

Virginia Corporate Whistleblower Protection Lawyers

The whistleblower provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act provide strong protection against retaliation for corporate whistleblowers.  To learn more about the rights of corporate whistleblowers in Virginia, call us at 202-262-8959.

Some SOX whistleblowers have achieved substantial recoveries.  In 2017, a former in-house counsel at a biotechnology company recovered $11 million in a SOX whistleblower retaliation case alleging that the company fired him for disclosing violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

We have published a free guide to the SOX whistleblower protection law: “Sarbanes-Oxley Whistleblower Protection: Robust Protection for Corporate Whistleblowers.”  The guide summarizes SOX whistleblower protections and offers concrete tips for corporate whistleblowers based on lessons learned during years of litigating SOX whistleblower cases.

The goal of the guide is to arm corporate whistleblowers with the knowledge to effectively combat whistleblower retaliation, avoid the pitfalls that can weaken a SOX whistleblower case, and formulate an effective strategy to obtain the maximum recovery.
