Issues that arise between the parties in a business agreement can have a significant impact on the business itself, often involving disputes over significant dollar amounts or even the future of the company or a strategic partnership or venture. From the moment we are hired, we take a comprehensive approach, developing a fact pattern of the case while simultaneously considering all business-oriented legal solutions for our clients. By developing a comprehensive overview of the case, we are able to identify the strengths of our client’s position, and we lean into our reputation as lawyers who are unafraid to go to trial to leverage a successful outcome without stepping foot in a courtroom.
We have advised corporations and partnerships, as well as executives and individuals in litigation involving breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, ownership rights, financial management issues, and more, litigating claims through arbitration and in court. We also provide governance-related advice in this area, advising on potential disputes that could arise and ways to mitigate any associated risk.
Additionally, we have advised clients in a broad range of more traditional employment law matters, including claims of misclassification, wrongful termination, constructive discharge, retaliation, discrimination, harassment, breach of restrictive covenants, and unpaid or withheld compensation. We also perform internal investigations and provide employers with guidance regarding employee misconduct. We advise on terminations with and without cause, forfeited benefits, and disciplinary actions; and we regularly counsel clients on developing policies for avoiding employment-related issues and in determining the most strategic course when litigation is threatened.
Throughout all of these disputes, we are adept at handling the public relations and crisis management issues that can arise, and we work with clients to mitigate any negative exposure.
