EMPLOYMENT LITIGATION AND COUNSELING

 

While we have extensive experience litigating legal issues faced by our clients, preventing legal problems from even arising is our goal. We work with our clients - small businesses and Fortune 500 companies alike - to provide practical advice and develop risk management strategies to achieve their business goals and to minimize the chance of litigation. Based upon review and analysis of a client's employment policies and practices, we can often anticipate potential problems and assist clients in minimizing future claims and litigation. Should litigation arise, however, we vigorously defend and advocate for our clients and our clients’ rights. What sets us apart is our commitment to understanding our clients’ businesses and providing them with the most effective legal advice to meet their objectives. We work with our clients to evaluate the impact a dispute may have on their business, as well as how various resolutions might affect their culture, operations, and future success, and proceed based upon an analysis of the totality of these issues.
