A Seasoned Legal Team

We offer our management clients the breadth of perspective gained from years of representing management and members of the workforce.  We have handled cases  from the management and employee side of the table.  This has given us the ability to effectively advise our clients.

Some of the  areas in which we assist employers, by providing legal counsel and defense, are:

 

  • Sexual Harassment

  • Gender Discrimination

  • Race Discrimination 

  • Age Discrimination

  • USERRA

  • Disability Discrimination

  • Sexual Orientation Discrimination

  • National Origin Discrimination

  • Religious Discrimination

  • Veteran Status Discrimination

  • Retaliation Claims

  • Wrongful Discharge

  • Wage and Hours Claims

  • Uniform Trade Secrets Act Claim

 

We work with employers to draft, negotiate and, if necessary, enforce:

 

  • Severance Agreements

  • Employment Contracts, including Executive Compensation Agreements

  • Trade Secrets/Confidential Agreements

  • Non-Competition Agreements

  • Non-Solicitation Agreements

  • Employment Handbooks

 

Frequently, we are also asked to provide workplace training, workplace investigations and workplace dispute resolution.

 

Take Advantage of Our Experience 

 

We want you to take advantage of our experience in the field and implement mechanisms that will decrease the likelihood your company will end up in court. Our clients have businesses to run. Lawsuits are expensive to defend. Those are the hard financial costs but there are also litigation related soft costs.  Soft costs are the expenses that are difficult to quantify, such as having to locate documents, testify in court and the impact a lawsuit can have on company moral.  We work with employers that see value in providing a workplace that represents the company's core principles.

 

Our Approach

We prefer to practice preventive legal care by providing clients training on legal and diversity issues, seminars, employment policy and handbook reviews, wage and hour reviews, along with updates on recents cases that impact the way you do business. In addition, our employment law blog, www.inzozi.com,  allows us to provide our clients updates on changes in the law and common sense approaches to workplace issues.

 

If You Have to Go to Trial

 

In the event your matter ends up in court, you will have confidence and peace of mind with the knowledge that your attorney and legal team have been there before. We will navigate you through the entire process from inception to resolution. Our firm is experienced in all forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution, understands the value of early claim resolution, but is always prepared to take the matter to trial.
