Employment Law

The Firm’s Employment Law Practice Primarily Focuses On Helping Employers, Employees, And Independent Contractors Navigate Contractual And Regulatory Matters In An Effort To Ensure Smooth Working Operations While Also Staying Ahead Of Potential Disputes.

For employers, that means ensuring that Offer Letters, Employment Agreements, Contractor Agreements, and other documents are carefully drafted to protect their investment in key talent and to safeguard hard earned goodwill, confidential information, and other intellectual property and propriety rights, while also ensuring such agreements adhere to legal and regulatory requirements. This is especially true in the age of remote work, which poses new challenges for businesses with employees or contractors in multiple states by subjecting such businesses to multiple legal and regulatory regimes. The Firm also assists employers with other transactional matters, including preparing, updating, and implementing Employee Handbooks and Policies; implementing Stock Award and Bonus Plans; and preparing Executive Compensation agreements. For complex legal questions, the Firm also provides legal opinions and analysis to help guide decision making.

For employees and contractors, the Firm regularly advises on Employment Agreements, Independent Contractor Agreements, Executive Compensation, Stock Awards and Stock Plans, Retention Agreements, Non-Compete Agreements, Non-Solicitation Agreements, Non-Disclosure Agreements, Separation Agreements, Confidentiality Agreements and others, to help ensure clients understand their rights and obligations, and to help ensure clients are being treated fairly and legally. The Firm also counsels individuals being granted ownership rights or options in their employers, especially those in professional fields such as accounting, dentistry, and medicine, by reviewing Option Agreements, Restricted Stock Awards, Partnership Agreements, Shareholder Agreements, and more.

Whether you are an employer or an employee, having a trusted legal advisor in your corner to help navigate the complex laws, regulations, and agreements governing employment and contracting matters is key to avoiding future disputes, and to helping ensure a mutually productive and beneficial employee-employer work environment.
