Vincent has provided well researched, thoughtful legal advice to [our company] concerning employment law matters. He is easy to work with and very responsive. I highly recommend him to any company on the subject of employment law.

Vincent maintains a versatile practice in the areas of labor and employment and general corporate law.

Vincent’s labor and employment practice focuses on counseling and advising employers on all aspects of the employment relationship. To do so, Vincent works with clients to manage risks and formulate strategies to avoid litigation and to comply with regulatory obligations. Vincent regularly represents employers in mediations, arbitrations, labor negotiations, contract negotiations and defends employers before administrative agencies such as the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, National Labor Relations Board, State Board of Labor Relations and federal and state Departments of Labor. Vincent is also a frequent presenter of seminars and training sessions on a variety of common employment issues.

Vincent also regularly represents clients in many other aspects of their operations, including entity formation, mergers and acquisitions, real estate transactions and leasing, contracts and corporate governance matters.

Vincent’s clients include closely held and public businesses, non-profit organizations, municipalities and financial and healthcare organizations.
