The field of employment law is rapidly changing; federal and state laws governing the screening and hiring of employees, employer provisions of benefits to employees, grounds for layoffs and termination, and post-employment competition are in constant evolution. A critical part of any business for both employers and executives is employment relations. As with any aspect of business, addressing employment issues requires planning, negotiation, and sometimes litigation. Our firm expertly counsels employers and executives on navigating these matters.
Our firm focuses on efficiently protecting your interests in handling important and sensitive employment matters. Specifically, our firm can advise business leadership regarding many facets of business, from negotiating and drafting agreements with and on the behalf of key employees (including issues of equity compensation, non-competition, and trade secrets) to providing advice on executive and employee separation (including advising on the rights and obligations of former executives and employees). If these issues cannot be resolved through initial negotiations, our firm is equally adept at litigating cases involving alleged employment discrimination, the enforceability of non-compete agreements, and other disputes concerning the rights and obligations arising under employment agreements.
In either instance, our lawyers use their judgment and skills to avert and/or resolve employment issues expeditiously while protecting your interests and minimizing the disruptions to your core business and functions.
