Allan S Bloom is an experienced trial lawyer who represents management in a broad range of employment and labour law matters. He has successfully defended a number of the world’s leading financial services, investment management, technology, consumer products, telecommunications, publishing, insurance, construction and lodging companies, as well as global law firms and cultural institutions, against claims for unpaid wages, employment discrimination, breach of contract, and wrongful discharge, both at the trial and appellate court levels.

Allan has secured complete defence verdicts for clients in front of juries as well as in bench trials, in cases involving allegations of age, disability (actual and perceived), national origin, race and sex discrimination; harassment/hostile work environment; failure to provide reasonable accommodations; and retaliation.

Allan regularly advises boards of directors and senior management on highly sensitive matters such as executive transitions and internal investigations. He counsels publicly traded and privately held companies on the hiring and termination of employees and consultants, the establishment and enforcement of workplace policies and practices, wage-hour compliance, reorganisations and reductions in force, alternative dispute resolution, and labour-management relations.

A prolific author, Allan is the editor of the New York State Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Journal. He frequently speaks on employment law issues. He has been repeatedly recognised in Chambers USA and Best Lawyers in America.
