Lymari Martinez Cromwell
Lymari Cromwell counsels clients in all aspects of employment and labor relations law, representing industries as diverse as healthcare, hospitality and manufacturing. From medical leaves to background checks, Lymari helps employers keep in step with the constantly changing regulations that impact the workplace, and works to ensure correct interpretation and implementation of the laws. Lymari has assisted with cases ranging from a 3,000-employee wage and hour collective action to a successful federal jury trial in a Title VII discrimination case.
Lymari’s practice is primarily transaction-based, in which she counsels companies with respect to labor and employment issues arising in the course of mergers and acquisitions. Her practice involves:
- Labor & Employment Law – Counsels employers with respect to day-to-day employment matters, such as discipline, termination, hiring, lay-offs and reductions in force, employment policies, leaves of absence and disability accommodations.
- Mergers and Acquisitions – Advising companies with regard to non-compete laws, overseeing significant employment-related due diligence in the context of acquisitions, and drafting and negotiating employment agreements.
- Employment Litigation – Representing companies related to discrimination, harassment and retaliation; Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA); wage and hour; whistleblower; breach of employment contract; and enforcement of non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants.
Along with employment litigation and counseling, Lymari assists employers in drafting policies and employee handbooks, employment and severance agreements, and non-compete, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements.
