Big firm talent. Small firm creativity.

Peter R. Rosenzweig

Peter Rosenzweig has dedicated his entire legal career to employment law and related litigation.

As a trial lawyer, Peter has handled both jury and non-jury cases in the federal and state courts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Florida, and has been directly involved in numerous matters before the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations, New Jersey Division on Civil Rights, United States Department of Labor, and Pennsylvania Department of Labor. Additionally, he has significant experience in the area of alternative dispute resolution, particularly mediations and arbitrations of employment disputes and other related matters.  Peter has extensive hands on experience with employers and employees in connection with a wide array of workplace disputes.

In recent years, his practice has been focused on wage and hour issues, and claims concerning overtime compensation under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and applicable state laws.  He often advises employers on maintaining compliance with all wage and hour issues, and defends them on claims of unpaid or improperly paid overtime compensation.  Additionally, he has been lead counsel in multiple collective and class actions and has represented employees around the country, individually and collectively, in lawsuits seeking unpaid wages and overtime pay.

Peter has developed a niche practice in the advocacy of employees working in the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (“UAV”)/drone industry.  His experience in this area has earned him the reputation of the “go-to” lawyer for UAV/drone employees who have not been paid proper overtime compensation.  Peter has successfully represented thousands of UAV Field Service Representatives and other drone employees in nationwide cases seeking proper compensation for overtime work.
