Morris Manning & Martin, LLP

Employment

Morris, Manning & Martin's Employment Practice understands that the most valuable asset a company has is its employees. We also understand that effective management of human resources allows a business to achieve its objectives. We try to understand our clients’ goals in order to provide effective employment advice. With business priorities clearly in mind, we help clients effectively manage their human resources. Our excellent service and skills are evidenced by the practice’s ranking in Chambers USA, a leading legal services ranking publication.

Compliance-focused Counseling

On a daily basis, our lawyers help companies comply with employment laws. Our pragmatic approach, combined with our knowledge of best practices, allows us to provide creative and cost-effective solutions. We have developed solution sets to avoid common employment law pitfalls, training modules to educate managers, and checklists to help avoid liability. Our Employment lawyers understand that proactive, preventive counseling can avoid employment disputes, lawsuits, and investigations.

Resolving Disputes

While employment counseling may prevent many disputes, it cannot prevent all disputes. When litigation ensues, our Employment lawyers seek to obtain a favorable result as quickly and as efficiently as possible. We provide an up-front assessment of the case including settlement possibilities, the chances of prevailing on a dispositive motion and appropriate staffing of the case. We defend the full gamut of employment cases. While many of our cases are resolved before trial, our Employment lawyers are also skilled trial lawyers who have litigated employment cases of every size and type.

Enabling Corporate Evolution

The Employment Practice also supports the firm’s significant Transactional Practice. Our lawyers assist in various corporate transactions including corporate restructurings and mergers and acquisitions. In such complex transactions, we work with the firm’s Transactional lawyers to provide effective counseling and management of employment issues.
