Nick has practiced employment law for 20 years, and he brings a unique and invaluable skill-set to Noble Law. Before joining the Firm in 2010, Nick practiced at Proskauer Rose LLP (in New York City) and Jones Day (in Washington D.C.), two of the nation’s largest and most respected management-side employment law firms. While at these firms, Nick successfully represented Fortune 500 companies in almost every conceivable employment situation, including in federal and state courts throughout the United States; high-stakes labor arbitrations; and administrative proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Department of Labor and National Labor Relations Board. As an employment attorney, Nick also became well-versed in handling appeals, particularly at the federal appellate level.
Due to his extensive management-side experience, Nick is familiar with and can anticipate the practical and legal strategies companies employ in litigation. Consequently, since joining The Noble Law, Nick has successfully and efficiently represented numerous clients at the pre-litigation and litigation phases of employment disputes. Due to the high-profile nature of some of his work, Nick’s cases have been covered by the press.
In addition to handling many of our employment law firm’s larger litigations, Nick has created a niche practice of representing C-suite and other upper-level executives in negotiating executive employment contracts; negotiating severance agreements; and litigating employment disputes as necessary for these executives.
In his free time, Nick is an avid Tar Heel fan, fitness fanatic, super-fan of the band Iron Maiden, and a frequent visitor to his favorite vacation spot, Disney World.
