Josh is a partner in the firm's Litigation and Employment Law groups and the head 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.
Josh is versed in review and analysis of medical records, and regularly conducts deposition of physicians and other health care providers. Josh also handles appellate work for the firm, including appeals in medical malpractice cases. He most recently successfully handled such an appeal in a significant medical malpractice case before the Pennsylvania Superior Court. In more than a decade of litigation work, he has counseled health care providers on malpractice issues and has worked with other health care litigators at Barley Snyder in the defense of medical malpractice claims. 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.
In addition, Josh devotes a portion of his practice to general litigation matters, including commercial disputes, business torts, insurance coverage disputes, and defense of personal injury claims.
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.
