Katz Banks Kumin LLP

The lawyers of Katz Banks Kumin (formerly Katz, Marshall & Banks) are nationally recognized leaders in the areas of whistleblower law, employment law, sexual harassment law, Title IX discrimination, and civil rights and civil liberties matters. They provide expert advice and representation on a wide range of whistleblower matters, including whistleblower retaliation cases and reward programs before the Securities and Exchange Commission and other federal programs. They are dogged advocates for their clients and are highly regarded by their adversaries for their tenacious representation of their clients. The firm handles cases nationwide with offices in Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. 

What sets us apart from other firms is not only our deep commitment to workplace and civil rights, but our broad range of collective experience and our creative yet practical problem-solving approach. We are always mindful of the unique aspects of every case and each client's individual needs.

We understand that the violation of your legal rights and being in conflict with powerful organizations can be intensely stressful. Our attorneys embrace their role as trusted advisers while working towards resolution of these sensitive matters. We pride ourselves on our ability to combine a compassionate approach with unflagging advocacy on our clients' behalf -- at the negotiating table and in the courtroom. Our work is our passion, and we are honored to help vindicate crucial rights to fairness, equality, and justice.
