Overview

The costs associated with attracting, incentivizing, and retaining the best talent make proactive planning and management business imperatives.

Our sophisticated team provides pragmatic solutions that manage liability risks and protect an employer’s interests, reputation, and business objectives. With a focus on management-side labor and employment practices in the Mountain West, we can quickly and efficiently draw on the expertise of our employment attorneys with significant experience in virtually every area of labor and employment law.

We partner with our clients to ensure that best practices are in place and legitimate business reasons motivate employment decisions. To help avoid costly litigation and business distraction, we talk through day-to-day employment issues and help you handle urgent workplace situations to prevent employment crises from arising. To minimize the exposure and liability that can result from non-compliant or simply ineffective processes, we design tailored training programs and conduct voluntary audits that help you identify and fix problems before an outside agency or lawsuit forces you to do so.

When disputes do occur, we will vigorously defend and guide you through dispute resolution, administrative proceedings, settlement negotiations, or aggressive and focused litigation to meet your definition of “win.”
