Understanding that human capital is among our clients’ greatest assets, we assist our clients with the drafting and negotiation of employment agreements, the establishment of stock option plans, phantom equity plans, and other equity compensation plans.

We also work with our clients to develop and implement programs to secure their confidential information, including non-competition, non-solicitation, non-disclosure agreements, and related restrictive covenants.

We have also represented our clients in employment-related litigation matters such as defense of claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful discharge, including claims before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and state employment agencies. Our attorneys have also litigated issues involving non-competition agreements and other restrictive covenants, the misappropriation of trade secrets, and unfair competition regarding proprietary information.
