Josh is a partner in the firm's Litigation and Employment Law groups and the chair of the firm’s Workers’ Compensation practice. In that capacity, Josh represents public and private employers in litigation matters, administrative agency investigations and labor arbitrations. Josh also counsels employers on issues related to injured workers, employee discipline and termination, workplace harassment, wage and hour compliance, medical leaves of absence and labor relations.
In addition, Josh devotes a portion of his practice to other litigation and appeal matters, including commercial disputes, business torts, insurance coverage disputes, personal injury claims and medical malpractice claims. Josh has experience in review and analysis of medical records and regularly conducts deposition of physicians and other health care providers. He recently successfully handled an appeal in a significant medical malpractice case before the Pennsylvania Superior Court. Through this work, as well as his general litigation practice, he has gained insight into the perspective of doctors and health care institutions, which in turn informs his work with those clients.
Before joining the firm, Josh was an associate at Williams & Connolly, LLP, in Washington, D.C., where he worked in commercial litigation, RICO, antitrust, consumer protection and unfair trade practices, trade secrets, securities litigation, misappropriation of ideas, land development disputes, civil rights litigation, and First Amendment litigation, among other areas.
