Recognition

overview

"Clients relate to my engaging approach and my appreciation for the challenges they face and the hard work they put in. You can’t take anything for granted these days, so planning, expertise, and attention to detail are essential and I think my ability to understand the wide range of issues employers face, from a granular perspective to the macro-level management and governance picture, enables me to provide strategic and efficient counsel."

Practice Overview

Amiel Provosty brings deep insight and experience from important and different angles which he gained as a prosecutor at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) for twelve years, and since then in private corporate employment litigation. Amiel advises employers nationally in all aspects of traditional labor and employment law, especially union certification elections and campaigns, collective bargaining, NLRB charges, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance, and employment and personnel issues such as wage-and-hour disputes, layoffs, terminations, employee performance controversies, labor concerns arising from the purchase or sale of assets, and all claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and whistleblowing.  He is a Labor Law Specialist, certified by the Louisiana Board of Legal Specialization.

As a former trial attorney for the NLRB, Amiel’s clients particularly benefit from his deep knowledge of the composition and inner workings of the NLRB across both Democratic and Republican administrations. He combines outstanding insider knowledge of Federal government regulations, with his courtroom experience, and business acumen.

Whether he’s counseling a Fortune 500 company or smaller concern, Amiel finds it gratifying to facilitate clients’ operational and entrepreneurial ambitions by helping them build and grow their businesses. He gets to know his clients well so he can best advise them on a myriad of policies, problems, and disputes, to protect their best interests, and to advance their goals. He also enjoys quickly grasping complex issues that impact the traditional employment law sphere, relying on his valuable past experiences involving licensing, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and intellectual property challenges that impact a workforce.

Amiel represents clients in a wide range of industries, such as federal contractors, research and development labs, pharmaceutical and biotech startups, traditional manufacturing, natural resources, engineering, sales and customer support, and in the entertainment industry.
