  • Drafting and negotiating noncompete agreements and employee agreements
  • Helping clients develop employee manuals and compliant policies
  • Advising companies on how to terminate a problem employee or respond appropriately to employee complaints
  • Defending clients in adverse action, discrimination and libel/slander lawsuits
