Deena B. Rosendahl Esq.
With her employment law practice, Ms. Rosendahl has experience representing both employees and employers and as such, brings a unique perspective to each employment case. “Having represented both management and employees, I know where a case is going before it gets there. I pride myself on providing each client with a strategy for overcoming problems and realistic likelihood of success in defending or prosecuting a claim. Although litigation may ultimately be necessary, my experience has shown me that employers and employees have one thing in common: neither side really wants to waste years of their life litigating a loser claim. It’s not just a waste of their money but of their time and productivity. When a case is valid, we fight. But when common sense dictates a reasonable settlement can be had, I work tirelessly at negotiating something fair that both sides can live with”.
Ms. Rosendahl has represented both employers and employees in all aspects of employment related claims and matters, including wrongful termination, CEPA violations, harassment, discrimination, violations of the FLSA, ADA, ADEA and others. She is well versed in negotiating and drafting non-compete agreements, employment contracts, separation agreements and employee handbooks. Ms. Rosendahl is also available to design and deliver anti-harassment/discrimination training seminars and other speaking engagements intended to educate employers on various employment laws/regulations.
In her commercial litigation and transactional work, Ms. Rosendahl represents individuals and corporate clients in prosecuting and defending complex commercial litigation claims of promissory estoppel, fraud/consumer fraud act, general and vicarious liability, breach of contract, negligence and other tort claims. She also has negotiated, reviewed and drafted various business contracts including commercial lease agreements, commercial loans, license agreements, franchisee/franchisor agreements, service contracts, shareholder agreements and others.
