Attorney Claire Saady — Partner

Claire SaadyCLAIRE SAADY is a partner at the Saady & Saxe, P.A. law firm concentrating in labor and employment law. Claire was formerly a partner in the New York City firm of Haight, Gardner, Poor & Havens (now known as Holland & Knight). She was an adjunct professor at Stetson Law School, Brooklyn Law School and Hofstra Law School, teaching employment law.

Claire is also a member of the Florida Bar Association and the Hillsborough County Bar Association.

Claire has counseled both management and employees for more than 25 years. Her broad range of experience includes representation of employees and employers in state and federal courts, arbitrations and administrative proceedings. Claire’s practice focuses on advising employers on day-to-day employment issues and the drafting of employee manuals, non-compete agreements and contracts. She also conducts training seminars for her clients on avoiding discrimination and sexual harassment claims. Because she is experienced on both the “employee” and “employer” side of employment discrimination disputes, she is in a position of strength when negotiating on behalf of her clients. While her focus and goal is to resolve employment-related disputes without litigation, she knows what it takes to get a matter settled and is fearless when it comes time to litigate.
