Craig represents organizations in a range of business sectors, including hospital and healthcare, financial services, retail, restaurant and hospitality, distribution and logistics, and manufacturing and technology. He has in-depth experience handling harassment, discrimination, and retaliation claims related to Title VII, ADA, ADEA, CFEPA and FMLA.
