Rob Bernstein focuses his practice on labor and employment exclusively for management, with an emphasis in litigation and counseling. With over 30 years of experience, Rob has represented many multinational and domestic corporations in a wide range of industries. His practice extends to numerous jurisdictions across the United States, involving most workplace issues, including class and collective actions, employee benefits and trade secret litigation.

Prior to joining the firm, Rob chaired the National Labor Department Steering Committee of a management-only national labor and employment firm, where he also served as one of only five members of the Firm’s Executive Committee and was a member of its Board of Directors. Rob also was partner at a top-15 international law firm, where he was privileged to chair its Global Marketing Team.

As the U.S. labor market continues to evolve over the coming decades, adapting to three major trends will be vital for employers. First, changing workforce demographics, size and focus will become a key issue in the provision of professional services – particularly as the baby boom generation continues to age. Second, increasing globalization means that national borders will become a greater challenge for companies to manage, in terms of both their immigration and international commerce requirements. Lastly, the rapid pace of technological change will continue to have a tremendous impact on both the workforce and the workplace.

Greenberg Traurig’s Labor & Employment Practice provides an array of workplace strategies and legal counsel, including practical and efficient consulting, technical assistance and litigation services. Our team understands the business impact of labor and employment issues. We have the varied experience needed to help organizations analyze options, make informed decisions and take effective action.

In addition, we offer clients the benefits of GT’s culture of collaboration, in which our attorneys frequently join forces, between offices and cities, in order to deliver the services you need. In this way, you can take advantage of GT’s national and international capabilities without having to travel beyond your local office.

GT’s New Jersey office is thus well-positioned to offer its legal services to a wide array of local, national and international business and technology clients. With a former Assistant United States Attorney with more than 30 years of trial experience heading the team, GT-NJ has grown to approximately 67 attorneys since its founding in October 2002. GT-NJ attorneys provide their experience to clients in a whole host of areas, including commercial litigation, corporate law and securities, bankruptcy, construction, intellectual property, labor and employment, trusts and estates and tax. GT-NJ also has a robust Financial Institutions Group that represents numerous major commercial banks and many companies in the Greater New York area.

In GT-NJ, the Greenberg Traurig global and industry group platform and business culture combines with a legal team that is deeply connected with, and committed to, the community it serves. In addition to the many and varied services GT-NJ provides to its business clients, individual GT-NJ attorneys provide their time and support to numerous charitable organizations, including The Alan Ameche Memorial Foundation, The American Heart Association, Jewish Family Services, Jewish Community Centers of the Delaware Valley, Bergen Pines County Hospital Foundation, Inc., and the U.S. Olympic Committee, New Jersey Chapter.
