Employment:  Litigation and Advisory

We have the experience to handle any employment issue in any forum, whether it is federal or state court or federal, state or local fair employment agencies.  Over the years, we have defended clients in jury trials and administrative hearings, as well as provided daily advice and counseling services to prevent, resolve and avoid employment issues without litigation - for both employer and employee.  We know how to resolve employment disputes, minimize the risk of litigation and handle cases at trial.  While it is our philosophy to help our clients avoid the financial and emotional toll that stem from lawsuits, we stand ready to litigate issues when necessary.

We also have extensive experience in drafting and negotiating employment and severance agreements for employees at all levels.  In addition, we assist companies in addressing the legal aspects of 

reductions in force, including ensuring compliance with federal and state layoff notice requirements (WARN), Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act (OWBPA).

Our practice also includes litigation to prevent the misappropriation and use of confidential information and trade secrets, enforcement of non-competition agreements and other restrictive covenants, as well as federal and state litigation involving claims of unfair competition, and anti-competitive practices.

Disputes between parties always have a cost.  This is especially true when a party is a small business or an individual, in which case the toll can be of significant monetary value, or even significant emotional value.  We are here to help.  We can help bring parties to the table and help bridge gaps that seem impossible to span.  It does not matter whether the dispute is in litigation and heading for trial, or percolating in its very beginning, we can help bring an end to the conflict so that the parties can move on with their businesses and their lives.
