For over 25 years, Mr. Kreucher has helped employers minimize the legal risks involved in employment decisions while maintaining their business goals.
Mr. Kreucher helps clients "prevent fires" by functioning as an extension of their human resources and in-house legal team. He also assists clients in navigating the "alphabet soup" of employment laws (ADA, ADAAA, ADEA, COBRA, EEOC, ERISA, FLSA, FMLA, GINA, NLRA, OSHA, TITLE VII, USERRA, WARN, ELCRA, PDCRA, etc.), restrictive employment covenants, sales commissions laws, internal investigations and employee performance issues. When litigation arises, he aggressively defends employers in court and administrative proceedings across the country. Mr. Kreucher takes a practical approach to every case, always mindful of the client's business needs, the budgetary pressures on in-house counsel to control litigation costs, and the precedent the litigation may set. Mr. Kreucher also routinely represents employers when confronted with state civil rights charges, unfair labor practice proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board, EEOC investigations and discrimination charges, labor arbitrations and commercial and general litigation matters.
Mr. Kreucher's representative clients range from small businesses to a large multinational Tier 1 automobile supplier, one of the nation's largest security firms as well as a Fortune 500 company, which provides integrated logistics, warehousing and transportation solutions.
