Martine Wells represents employers in all workforce-related matters. While Martine’s goal is to help employers avoid disputes, when necessary, she defends employers in all varieties of employment litigation, including class, collective action, and individual lawsuits involving current and former employees. While her practice is focused on wage and hour claims (off-the-clock, unpaid overtime, tip pools and credits, and misclassification claims arising under the FLSA, the Colorado wage laws and COMPS, and other states’ laws), she also represents employers in discrimination, wrongful termination, and non-compete/non-solicit litigation. Martine is well versed with managing e-discovery issues, experts, and appeals. In parallel to her litigation practice, she regularly advises employers on strategies to mitigate risk in the workplace, including regarding restrictive covenants, hiring and separations, equal pay, and wage and hour issues. She also supports deal teams advising regarding employment issues in mergers, acquisitions, and other transactions, and advises executives related executive employment agreements. Her clients include employers of all sizes across industries, including health care, real estate development, mortgage lending, call center, hospitality, consumer finance, consumer goods, retail, and online gaming.
