Legal Help To Assist Employers In Resolving Employment Disputes While Protecting Their Interests

When it comes to disagreements between employers and their workers, many perceive the process to be one in which the two sides end up in protracted litigation as soon as a dispute comes to light.

In practice, however, nothing could be further from the truth. Both employers and employees often have strong incentives to pursue alternatives that spare all sides the time and expense of fully litigating a claim, and often these alternatives can be better for both parties in the long run.

As an employer, you need legal counsel whose goal is to help you maintain your business's bottom line, not simply propose a lengthy strategy that may not be in your best interests. Our attorneys offer more than legal experience: They offer problem-solving experience, with years in practice working with businesses throughout Northern California to bring swift and successful resolutions to common workplace disputes. When a disagreement with an employee threatens to undermine the success of your business, the problem-solving skills of an experienced lawyer is something you cannot afford to do without.

Loss prevention refers to the strategy of seeking resolution to disputes that avoids the need to fully litigate a case. It can be used to respond to any number of potential claims that arise in workplaces, including discrimination, harassment, whistleblower and other claims that can impact an employer.

By examining the facts of the case and where a client's strengths lie, we can determine whether a severance agreement can help a client avoid costly litigation. We work with employers to negotiate, draft and execute separation agreements, nondisclosure agreements and other legal contracts that are frequently used at the end of the employment relationship.

With our firm, you won't have to worry about what will happen if negotiations alone are unsuccessful. As experienced litigators, our attorneys are always prepared to go to court to vindicate our clients' position.
