Year in review: Lawler negotiated several settlements on behalf of employers, including a sexual harassment and constructive termination suit against a Los Angeles County substance abuse services provider, and claims against a Whittier country club involving age discrimination, workers' compensation and alleged failur to accomodate an employee with a disability. He represented a San Bernardino County school in a sexual harassment and retaliation lawsuit in which a school employee claimed she was demoted after she rebuffed sexual advances from a superior. The case settled.

Next challenge: Lawler is representing employers in the gaming, golf course and computer software industries in sexual harassment and discrimination suits. He is defending a Mexican bank and an affiliated U.S. company against a lawsuit filed by a former consultant alleging wrongful termination and breach of contract.
