Employment and Labor Law Services


Businesses inevitably face issues with employees that often disrupt the workplace and can negatively impact the overall performance of the business. Of the wide variety of issues that can arise between an employer and employee, many of them can be prevented by consulting with an attorney during the early stages of your business. Working with a lawyer to preemptively mitigate workplace disputes can help your business create a healthy workplace and avoid the expenses associated with litigation or arbitration. Our lawyers can assist in building a strong employment structure for your business through various legal methods, including the following: 

    • Drafting Employee Handbooks and Employee Policies 
    • Reviewing Employment Contracts
    • Securing Intellectual Property
    • Non-Competes and Non-Disclosure Agreements


While comprehensive employee workbooks and policies can close the door on most employee disputes, issues often arise before businesses fully address the areas mentioned above. Once an employee dispute begins, it is crucial for a business to retain an attorney as early as possible in the dispute to prevent further damage to the relationship and business. Our attorneys can navigate your business through various disputes including the following common issues:

    • Executing Terminations and Layoffs
    • Compensation Disputes 
    • Wrongful Termination Disputes
    • Family and Medical Leave (FMLA) Disputes
    • Issues Relating to Discrimination, Harassment, Retaliation
