    Bruce P. McMoran

    Partner

    The firm is led by Bruce P. McMoran, who has over 30 years of experience in labor and employment law. Mr. McMoran has tried over 200 cases. His experience is long and distinguished and includes numerous multi-million dollar jury verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients.

    During the early years of his career, Mr. McMoran represented only companies in employment law. He watched as the “social compact” which had existed between companies and their employees for generations slowly eroded away. That social compact was based on the mutual understanding that if the employee worked hard and was loyal to the company, then, in return, the company would be loyal and provide long-term job security and benefits to the employee.

    Beginning in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, and continuing to date, companies have demonstrated less and less loyalty to their employees. Long-term, hard-working employees were terminated and were replaced by younger employees or their jobs were “outsourced.”

    As he saw the playing field being tilted more and more in favor of employers, Mr. McMoran began to represent employees against their employers. Following several significant courtroom victories against companies (see, Wall Street Journal, May 31, 1995, page 1), he shifted his practice to primarily representing individual employees.

    Awards

    In 2016, the New Jersey Law Journal named Mr. McMoran as one of the three finalists for its 2016 Lawyer of the Year Award for his successful representation of an employee whistleblower against a major pharmaceutical company before the New Jersey Supreme Court.

    In 2017, Mr. McMoran was again selected as one of the Best Lawyers in America for labor and employment law for the 14th year in a row. In 2017, he was chosen by his peers as a Super Lawyer for the 13th consecutive year. Several times he has been named as one of the Top 100 Super Lawyers by New Jersey Monthly Magazine in employment law. For more than 25 years, Martindale Hubbell has awarded Mr. McMoran its highest possible peer review in legal ability and ethical standards rating (AV) and named him as one of the preeminent lawyers in the country. He has also been repeatedly named as one of the top employment lawyers in the New York area.

    Results

    Mr. McMoran has achieved among the highest jury verdicts in New Jersey for individual clients in employment cases, including jury verdicts of $8.4 million* and $5.3 million, and has been awarded membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He has settled numerous severance disputes and cases before, during and after verdict for amounts in excess of $1 million.

    Teaching

    Mr. McMoran has taught employment law to judges at the New Jersey Judicial College and serves as Co-Chair of the Employment Law Trial Practices Sub-Committee of the NJSBA Labor & Employment Law Section. He has been on the faculty of the Practicing Law Institute’s Annual Institute on Employment Law, and regularly teaches lawyers in the area of employment law on the faculty of the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education. He has more than 25 years experience in teaching courses in employment law, including:

    • Litigating and trying employment cases
    • Sexual harassment in the workplace
    • Winning case settlements
    • Discovery and trial tactics

    Under Mr. McMoran’s leadership, the firm has become one of the best known and most successful employment law firms in New Jersey. In the process, the firm has recovered tens of millions of dollars for its clients.

    Mr. McMoran is admitted to practice in New Jersey, New York, Florida, and the District of Columbia, as well as before the Second, Third, Fifth, Eleventh and District of Columbia United States Circuit Courts of Appeal and the United States Supreme Court.

    Mr. McMoran is also an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association.
