Allison Goico – Allison’s practice focuses on litigation and counseling with an emphasis on management-side (both private and public employers) employment discrimination, wage and hour, non-competes, and leave laws. She regularly appears before both state and federal courts as well as administrative agencies and has experience with arbitrations under collective bargaining agreements. Allison defends employers against charges filed with the EEOC and state and local fair employment agencies, and has experience defending cases brought by the EEOC as a litigant. In addition, she regularly counsels employers on personnel matters arising under the ADEA, FMLA, and other state and federal employment laws. Allison has successfully defended class and collective actions in the WARN Act and wage and hour contexts.

Prior to joining the firm, Allison practiced in the Chicago office of Franczek Radelet, P.C. Earlier in her career, she practiced in the Chicago office of Sidley Austin LLP.


Corey Asay – Corey works with clients across a broad range of industries and regularly litigates and counsels clients on a wide range of employment issues, including matters arising under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act and the National Labor Relations Act. He also has extensive experience representing clients in cases involving non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, as well as the misappropriation of trade secrets. Corey frequently appears before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and state and federal courts throughout the country. He has also represented clients before the Ohio Civil Rights Commission and the National Labor Relations Board.

Understanding the importance for employers to proactively mitigate risk, he teams with clients to conduct training programs and draft employee policies and procedures to ensure compliance. He regularly provides advice and counsel to employers on personnel policies, employee discipline, and harassment investigations.
