Fabian focuses his practice on representing domestic and foreign business, and their executives, in commercial disputes and in the defense of complex labor and employment matters.  This includes litigating complex contractual matters, high-stakes trade secret, non-compete, and unfair competition matters, and defending against whistleblower, wage and hour, and other employment-related claims.

In the employment context, Fabian has experience representing employers and executives in both unionized and union-free environments. He has obtained successful resolutions on behalf of his clients in single plaintiff, multi-plaintiff, and class and collective actions in both state and federal courts, and has also represented clients before federal, state, and local administrative agencies including the Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Florida Commission on Human Rights, and the Miami-Dade Commission on Human Rights. Additionally, Fabian has successfully arbitrated public and private sector labor and employment matters from inception to complete dismissal, including in the media, finance, healthcare, restaurant, food and grocery retail, and construction industries.

While Fabian is adept at handling litigation and administrative charges for clients, a central focus of his practice is providing employers with preventive counseling and training, in both English and Spanish, on a host of employment law topics, including sexual harassment and discrimination, hiring, discipline and discharge, wage and hour regulations, independent contractor classification issues, and alternative dispute resolution. Fabian is skilled at trouble-spotting and has conducted company-wide audits of employee classifications, compensation practices, and equal employment practices. He has also reviewed, drafted, and revised company handbooks and standalone policies to remain compliant with the ever-shifting landscape of employment laws.

Fabian has worked on several facets of traditional labor law, including working on collective bargaining negotiations, unfair labor practice charges, and arbitration hearings.
