With more than twenty years of experience representing both employees and employers, we are leading advocates in the employment law arena. We offer small businesses the same sophistication and quality representation found in Boston’s largest law firms, but with a small firm’s attention to detail, personalized service by the firm’s lawyers, affordable fees and prompt, cost-effective results.
The firm represents employers in all aspects of their employment relationships, from drafting employment agreements to negotiating severance packages, and we counsel small businesses on preventive employment strategies designed to avoid legal claims and protracted litigation. We can draft employee handbooks and employment policies that foster a productive relationship between employers and employees. We can also conduct audits of your employment practices for compliance with federal and state law, and we can assist employers in bringing those practices into compliance.
Our preventative strategies include being available to give you advice on a wide range of employment issues that may arise in your workplace. For example, we can advise you about wage and hour issues, accommodating an employee’s disability or laying off employees. When you believe it may be necessary to terminate an employee, we can help you to effectuate that change in a way that may minimize your exposure to employee claims. We can draft, negotiate and advise employers on non-compete agreements, severance agreements and other employment contracts.
We also represent employers in a wide array of employment claims, including employment discrimination, sexual harassment, wrongful termination, contract claims and disputes regarding the payment of wages, overtime and commissions. We also represent employers before state and federal administrative agencies, in Massachusetts state and federal court and in arbitration and mediation hearings.
