Though we have our roots in employment law, client demand for a more holistic approach has encouraged us to expand our expertise and our staffing to include business litigation and counsel.
Employment counseling and litigation? Our experience is extensive and particularly deep in the Southeast and California (ground-zero for employment law). Bios for Theresia, Ted, Hilarie, and Risa illustrate the breadth of our team's litigation experience, appearing in practically every federal circuit in the country, representing companies on a myriad of claims - leave issues, harassment, discrimination and retaliation, wage hour, restrictive covenants, EEOC enforcement, just to name a few. With this litigation background, we have the knowledge to draft sensible contracts and practical policies and procedures, even when employers operate in multiple jurisdictions.
We work nationwide and can handle a volume of work. We have an exclusive relationship with CadenceCounsel, Inc., which provides us an elite nationwide network of lawyers who have worked in the country's most distinguished law firms. We work with these attorneys on a regular basis, so we have first-hand knowledge of their talents.
Starting or expanding a new business? We count many of our O4W/Inman Park and SoMa neighbors as clients. We even helped start some of our now-veteran-employer clients from scratch. Theresia handles all aspects of starting a business, including incorporation and vendor contracts. David engages valuable insight and expertise in licensing, permitting, and real estate law derived from his 21 years in this neighborhood. Sarah contributes a range of strategic operations offerings from creating business plans to developing website and social media platforms, and our network of vendors handles everything from payroll to benefits. This team anticipates and meets the broad spectrum of new business needs with a mindfulness of the legal issues for new or expanding businesses.
