Roman has counseled, lectured, and trained employers on a wide range of common law and statutory issues. He has extensive knowledge and litigation experience with right to privacy, defamation, emotional distress, breach of contract, assault and battery, and other common law claims.

His experience also includes litigating sexual and other forms of harassment, discrimination, Title VII and Hawaii Employment Practices Statute cases, FLSA, HIPAA, ERISA, FMLA, ADA, ADEA, COBRA, whistleblower, retaliation, and other statutory-based claims. He has defended and prosecuted class action lawsuits.
