The body of law that governs the employment relationship from start to finish is a disparate framework of common law principles (such as contract and tort) and local, state, and federal statutory requirements. As a result, employment law is a specialized area of practice. Our firm represents and counsels both employers and employees in the full range of employment law matters, including wrongful termination, wage and hour litigation, covenants not to compete and other restraints on trade, executive compensation, and many others. We represent both employers and employees in these matters, and feel that this gives our lawyers a unique perspective on employment-related litigation.
