RICO Actions

When problems arise with labor unions, it’s important to have experienced legal counsel on your side. At Dinsmore, our attorneys have extensive experience representing employers in civil RICO actions, prosecuting and defending organizations and corporations regarding allegations of racketeering by labor unions in the context of violent strikes, strike misconduct and corporate campaigns.

Our attorneys have handled RICO matters in a variety of industries, including newspapers, food services, health care and the energy industry. We make a commitment to understand the objectives and operations of each industry to tailor an approach that best suits their needs. Our familiarity with employment and labor law in various states, combined with our knowledge of industry operations, allows us to bring unique perspectives to the table in RICO matters as we guide clients. By building relationships with clients, we’re also able to offer advice on the feasibility of filing RICO claims, helping them mitigate risk and find efficient resolutions. Understanding that litigation is not always the most desirable option, our team is experienced in resolving issues short of the courtroom, working with each client to assess their needs and steer them toward cost-effective solutions.

In addition to handling RICO action matters before a variety of trial and appellate courts, we also are frequent speakers on RICO actions around the country. We feature the former management chair of the American Bar Association’s Antitrust, RICO and Labor Law Committee, and have spoken at the United States Chamber of Commerce, the Canadian Association of Counsel to Employers and various other legal conferences and seminars.
