Firm Details

Rukin Hyland is an AV-rated San Francisco Bay Area law firm providing employment law services to a broad range of clients. As former Am Law 50 attorneys, the lawyers at Rukin Hyland offer clients the high-powered representation and exceptional work quality of a large law firm, and the responsiveness and individual attention our clients expect from a small firm. They are selective in the cases they take so that they can devote their full attention to the clients whom they represent. Their reputation among judges, co-counsel, opposing counsel, and clients is impeccable.

Main Areas of Practice:

Employment Law:  Clients come to us because we are workplace problem solvers.  We know employment law inside out, and use that knowledge to achieve optimal results for the people and businesses we represent.  Our size, sophistication, and breadth of experience allow us to tailor an approach that best suits a client’s needs and goals.

Our expertise runs the gamut, from whistleblower, overtime, disability discrimination, and sexual harassment claims to workplace privacy and trade secret matters.  We provide businesses with compliance counseling and conduct workplace trainings and investigations,. We advise executives regarding whistleblower issues, executive compensation, non-compete agreements, and cross border contract disputes. 

Sexual Harassment: We represent employees who have been sexually harassed in the workplace.

Whistleblower litigation: We represent employees who have knowledge of fraud and unlawful conduct at the companies where they work.

Trade Secret and Non-Competition Law: We advise clients regarding the ins and outs of trade secret and anti-competition laws in California (including employee raiding, misappropriation claims, proprietary information and non-competition agreements, and related matters) and represent businesses and employees in trade secret litigation.
