We are at the forefront of emerging trends in employment law while maintaining a practical focus on providing cost-effective solutions for employers of all sizes. We provide employers with proven tools, documents and advice to simplify the management of the legal aspects of employment matters.  We emphasize preventive planning and pro-active risk-management to help employers to keep employees engaged and productive.  Our experienced lawyers work closely with management to achieve corporate goals efficiently. For start-up enterprises, we help to implement best practices in all key employment law areas including: hiring; compensation; termination; occupational health and safety; discrimination and harassment; disability and religious accommodation; and employment policies.  We work closely with human resources managers to tailor our recommendations to fit your organization's culture and operational requirements.  We frequently draft employment policies and Employee Handbooks and advise on updates required to meet new legal requirements.  We also work closely with you preparing and enforcing non-disclosure, non-solicitation, non-competition and non-dealing covenants by employees.  We advise on employment related litigation matters and, when necessary, represent our clients in litigating these matters. Our clients benefit from easy access to seasoned practitioners who can often solve problems more quickly, avoiding unnecessary complications and costs.
