Success today depends largely upon effective management of people. Effective labor and employment counsel help manage various factors that may affect the success, including the dynamic arising among the company, its workers, and market forces, (including government agencies). Practical advice is the result of our knowledge of each client’s business. If we do not understand a client’s business, we learn it on our time, not theirs.
