Employment Law

People are the backbone of your business. But, employing people is never simple or completely straightforward. Engaging the right legal partner in developing a proactive approach to employment issues can help define a culture for successfully managing personnel. While providing legal services to our clients, we look ahead to anticipate potential problems and provide solutions before the problems occur.

  • Age discrimination
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Disabilities issues
  • Employee benefits (including health care and retirement)
  • Employee discipline
