Allan N. MacLean concentrates his practice on assisting clients with employment-related legal issues. In this regard, Allan represents both individual professionals and employers. Allan has been practicing employment law since 2006 when he joined a national employment law boutique firm, where he spent twelve years working in the firm's Boston office. Before entering private practice, Allan also clerked for the Justices of the Superior Court in Massachusetts.
Allan now counsels and represents both individuals and employers regarding a full range of employment matters, including leaves of absence, payment of wages, discipline and terminations, harassment and discrimination claims, and the negotiation of severance. He also assists clients with "non-compete" agreements and litigation relating thereto.
At all times, Allan focuses on achieving optimal results for his clients. Allan understands that each individual client and case is unique. By first listening to his clients and then applying his experience and knowledge to their issues, Allan has proven to be a strong and effective advocate for his clients’ interests. With this in mind, Allan is prepared to zealously litigate matters on behalf of his clients when necessary, but also works hard to position matters for a favorable settlement when appropriate.
As part of Allan’s practice, he regularly represents clients in employment-related suits in federal and state courts, and before several administrative agencies, including the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the Department of Labor.
