Your business is at its best when your employees are at their best. Our Employment & Labor lawyers help employers manage human resources and employee relations proactively, and when problems arise, we will navigate with you through the difficult times.
When you need answers to your employment law questions, our attorneys will provide thoughtful legal advice and provide it within the context of your larger operation. The HR decisions you make today can have ripple effects and impact decisions you’ll make in the future, and we’ll help guide you through.
We represent employers – large national corporations, small local businesses, and everything in between – which positions us as the team to call when you need direction through even the most complicated employment situation, from day to day human resources and employment advice, to compliance management, to defending employment claims and litigation.
Our work spans the country, and we routinely represent our clients in federal and state courts, before federal and state administrative agencies, at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and in arbitration forums.
We provide legal counsel and assistance to our clients in the preparation and use of employment applications, in conducting background checks on job applicants, in the areas of affirmative action, executive compensation and benefits, and responding to claims for unemployment benefits, wage garnishments, wage deductions and wage assignments.
