Our team has successfully negotiated, mediated, and resolved hundreds of employment law disputes to keep our clients from going to court or facing regulatory sanctions. These include compensation and wage disputes, disability and leaves of absence, and discipline and termination issues. We also help employers negotiate appropriate limits and compliance solutions to government agency charges and investigations.
