Need help with an employment matter?

If you are an employee or employer an employment lawyer will draft and review your employment contracts and any other binding legal documents concerning employment including agreements covering confidentiality, non-disclosure, competition and non-compete, stock and options, commission and revenue sharing. Before you sign any agreement a lawyer can review, offer advice and resolve any issues. It’s in the interest of both employees and their employers to have proper agreements. An employment lawyer or law firm will also litigate to resolve any disputes if an agreement was improper or not respected.
