We are a boutique employment law firm where it is our mission to provide thoughtful, compassionate and vigorous representation to our clients in an atmosphere that is both industrious and respectful of others.
Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination in all areas of employment including job advertising, recruitment, application and hiring, job assignments and promotion, pay and benefits, dress code, discipline, and discharge. Discrimination can take many different forms, some of which are less obvious than others. In some cases, employers may not be even aware that they are engaged in discriminatory practices.
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.
