Our Employment Practices and Benefits Group combines the strength of our litigation and business practices to advise clients in all areas of employment relations.
We litigate employment relationship disputes, including employment discrimination claims, noncompetition agreements and claims for statutory entitlements; we also design and implement benefit plans provided to employees, key personnel and owners. We believe preventative action is the best defense against employment disputes, though know that a firm response to litigation is often required. Similarly, we believe that a thoughtful approach to employee benefit design and implementation is the best defense to regulatory non-compliance, though we are prepared to advise plan sponsors when plan compliance matters arise in the course of operation.
Employer-employee matters sometimes happen quickly. Consequently, we often take unexpected client calls and must immediately provide them with our best guidance. That’s why every member of our team closely monitors the regulatory changes that affect the workplace, on both the state and federal levels, so that we can offer our wisdom and judgment as soon as the client needs it.
Unlike firms that only specialize in employment law, we have teams of lawyers with diverse skills and experience we can draw on when employment matters bleed into business and other issues, as they often do. In essence, as a full-service firm, we can handle anything that comes our way.
