Employment Litigation And Dispute Resolution
Even with sound practices in place, employee disputes inevitably arise. Our skilled attorneys can defend or initiate legal action, including:
- Litigation over theft of trade secrets or violation of noncompetes
- Severance negotiations or buyouts with executives and key employees
- Lawsuits for harassment, discrimination, retaliation or wrongful termination
- Wage and hour claims (e.g., unpaid overtime, employee misclassification)
- Terminating a problem employee
When feasible, we strive to resolve employment disputes out of court to limit the distraction, expense and damage to your company’s goodwill. However, if a negotiated resolution is not possible, our experienced litigators are prepared to go to court to fight for your best interests.
