We have over sixty years of combined experience representing employers in labor relations and employment law matters. We believe that there are numerous advantages for a company to look to a firm that has practiced labor and employment law for many years in both preventing and defending employment discrimination litigation. Our foremost concern is to avoid litigation whenever possible through preventive planning. Our clients consult with us on a regular basis before taking action to avoid labor disputes and costly lawsuits. The best result for a client is the lawsuit that does not happen in the first place.
We have been giving seminars and writing articles for many years on how to avoid litigation through the use of progressive discipline, documentation, consistent treatment, adoption of anti-harassment policies, employee handbooks, and proper training of supervisory staff. We give this advice because we have seen that it has worked for our clients. Our long-term clients who regularly consult with us before taking adverse disciplinary action rarely face litigation over those decisions. Unfortunately, many clients do not come to us until after they have been sued. However, our expertise and experience also benefit these clients. They do not have to pay for an inexperienced attorney’s “learning curve”. Instead, they can take advantage of our combined experience of over sixty years in handling thousands of termination cases so that the merits of each case and possible exposure can be properly assessed.
