Employment Law

If you are an employer you must comply with state and federal rules and regulations. This includes protecting your employees from workplace accidents and discrimination, as well as protecting your best interests in the hiring and firing process. Understanding how these laws can help protect you can guide you in running your day-to-day affairs smoothly and without issues.

Initial employment agreements, including non-compete clauses, are necessary. These documents must be carefully drafted and reviewed before any employee signs. They help safeguard your business from predatory practices or employees and ensure that your intellectual property does not get stolen.

Copyrights & Trademarks

Copyright law is complex. It grants exclusive rights to an original creation and punishes those who seek to steal ideas, images, writings, or other creative property with fines or litigation. These laws include a variety of issues and legal matters and require the assistance of a skilled lawyer to successfully navigate.

Similarly, trademark protection offers businesses the ability to protect their logos so they are not misappropriated. Trademarks protect your company’s good name and marks a product or service as yours.

Further, we can help protect your trade secrets, making sure any economic advantages that your company has is maintained. When a breach of confidence occurs and trade secrets are leaked, we can help your company pursue legal action in order to protect your assets and compensate you for the leak.
