From simple non-compete agreements to complex federal labor laws, employment issues represent a company’s greatest expense and potential for liability. For employees, improper discipline, harassment, and discrimination are life-changing events that require compassion and an experienced lawyer.
At Smith and Condeni, our philosophy is that the best representation comes from an attorney who knows both sides. Our lawyers have represented management in organized labor disputes, contract negotiations, and before government agencies and numerous courts. We have also represented employees in those same venues. When it comes to helping management avoid pitfalls that lead to litigation, or standing before a judge if a claim is filed, there is no better asset than knowing what to expect from the other side. Similarly, the most effective representative for an employee is an attorney who knows which questions to ask, what to look for and where to find it.
At the outset of any litigation, our clients can expect a thorough review of all the details, continuous communication about the status and expectations of the case, and an aggressive approach to reach a resolution that is in the best interest of the client. We take pride in the fact that corporate clients of Smith and Condeni receive the professional, experienced service of a “big firm” without the delay and expense. Our employee clients can take advantage of this reputation and the support of a firm which is not available with other lawyer firms and solo practitioners.
Please contact Smith and Condeni for more information. We look forward to hearing from you.
