Effective management of human resources allows a business to achieve its broader business objectives. With our clients’ business priorities top of mind, we partner with our clients to understand their goals to provide effective and practical employment advice and counseling.
On a daily basis, we help companies comply with employment laws. Our pragmatic approach, our dedication to keeping up with the ever-changing laws across the nation, 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.
While employment counseling can often successfully prevent many disputes, litigation or threatened litigation can ensue. When it does, our Employment lawyers, who have experience defending the full gamut of employment matters, 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.
In addition, we work closely with the firm’s Transactional Practice, providing significant support on various corporate transactions (buy- and sell-side). As part of this work, we draft and negotiate executive employment agreements, sale-of-business restrictive covenants agreements, transaction bonus agreements, retention agreements, relevant portions of the purchase agreement, and other related documents. We also assist our clients following the transaction closing to ensure a smooth transition of employees and to clean up any employment issues identified in diligence. These clients who come to the firm for their first transaction often become part of the MMM family and end up regularly partnering with our team for day-to-day HR advice and counseling.
