Blum Collins Retainer Agreements

If you have received a retainer agreement via e-mail from Blum Collins please make sure you’ve reviewed it, signed it and sent it back (either snail mail, fax or scan and e-mail).

If you would like to receive a retainer agreement for your review and be included in the class action suit, please contact me or email Blum Collins at or

Note: you do not need to sign a retainer agreement to ultimately become part of the class action.  In the near future there will be a class certification process and everyone will have the ability to “opt out” of the class if that is their desire.


Class Action Lawsuit

A class action lawsuit on behalf of CA, WA and NY staff of Heller Ehrman was filed yesterday, October 20, 2008 on the United States District Court, Northern District of California.  Here is a link to a copy of the complaint:

WARN Act Representation

Just a quick FYI – we have secured class action representation pertaining to the WARN Act in case Heller Ehrman LLP files for bankruptcy and does not uphold its commitment to pay the balance of severance as dictated by the WARN Act.

I will have more information later today or tomorrow.

We will need to secure separate representation as to the wage claims for non-payment of wages and accrued vacation.  We are in the process of securing representation for this aspect as well.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
