Harmon represents Fortune 500 companies – including some of the largest U.S. financial institutions, telecommunications, and energy giants, and leading automotive, food and product manufacturers – in bet-the-company litigation across the country.

He handles high-profile investigations involving sensitive issues relating to sexual and racial harassment/discrimination, whistleblowers, and other violations of federal and state law.
