His experience includes nationwide and single plaintiff wage-and-hour claims; discrimination, retaliation, and hostile work environment claims; complex restrictive covenant and breach of contract litigation; and employment due diligence counseling for mergers and acquisitions. In 2017 and 2018, Tom was named a “Pennsylvania Rising Star” in Employment Litigation by Super Lawyers.
