Founded in 1980, Barlow, Kobata & Denis LLP is comprised of a team of attorneys who are experts in their field, with an in-depth understanding of the current state of the law, its future direction, and the accompanying practical implications for employers. This unique expertise allows us to both help clients avoid litigation entirely by anticipating future employment problems, and effectively defend clients when and if a case goes to trial. As testament to our reputation for excellence in this area of law, we are the recipients of Martindale-Hubbell's "AV" peer rating, signifying the highest levels of legal ability and ethical standards.

We pride ourselves on forming long-standing personal relationships with clients, granting us a familiarity with their businesses that allows us to act quickly to protect their interests and provide effective advice whenever a labor issue arises.
