Our Firm represents employers in a wide array of employment matters in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies, such as the EEOC. We are well-versed in the legal and practical aspects of employment matters, such as defecting employees, the protection of trade secrets and proprietary information, and the enforcement of restrictive covenants.
Employment, Non-Solicitation, and Non-Competition Agreements
Comprehensive and enforceable employment agreements are vital to the success and longevity of any business. We have represented employers against defecting employees, including advising, negotiating, preparing and enforcing employment contracts, restrictive covenants, protection of trade secrets, and proprietary information.
We encourage our clients to take a proactive approach to protecting their intellectual property, employees, financial resources, and other proprietary property. In doing so, we assist our clients in implementing guards against potential threats to their invaluable assets. This may include drafting enforceable restrictive covenants, non-disclosure agreements, and employment agreements.
Beyond the initial development and implementation of preventative measures, our attorneys zealously represent our employers in the enforcement of their agreements to fully protect and enforce their contract rights. Our Firm prides itself on its quick response time to clients’ needs, which often involves filing or defending an action for injunctive relief.
Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution of Employment Disputes
Our attorneys work efficiently, with a focus on using the litigation process as a means of achieving a solution to your business problem. We always look for an opportunity for an early termination of a lawsuit via motions to dismiss or for summary judgment, and we use alternative dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration wherever it is required or makes sense to do so.
Employment Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation
Despite the implementation of comprehensive and effective workplace policies, employers remain at risk for claims of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Our attorneys are experienced in defending against charges, claims, and lawsuits brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
