We have had many successes representing employers. In litigation, however, more than just winning is at stake. The lawyers you hire will be your company’s face to judges, juries, and other legal professionals. You can trust Oberti Sullivan to go beyond mere substantive excellence and to consistently conduct ourselves in a way that positively reflects your company and its core values.
Listed below are some of Mark Oberti’s and Ed Sullivan’s career achievements representing employers, whether at this firm or our prior firm. The results of these cases are based on their unique facts. Past results in these cases do not mean that we can obtain those results for your company, and you should not rely on these cases to think or expect that you will obtain similar results.
