Helping Employers Protect Their Investments
Business owners in Wisconsin recognize that the success of their enterprise relies on their diligent monitoring of various factors: the quality of their products, their engagement with customers and the protection of their intellectual property. What can be forgotten with a singular focus on external elements is that internal issues can harm a business’s health as well.
When money and time need to be allocated to defend against an employee’s claim, the business entity invariably suffers. Without proper representation, owners and operators can be worn down by the duration and cost of the litigation. It is for this reason that retaining a seasoned employment attorney is vital.
Having emphasized this field of law in my practice over 20 years, I defend business owners against unfounded claims in matters such as:
- Wrongful termination
- Breach of contract
Designing Contracts To Lessen Litigation’s Effect On The Balance Sheet
Small and midsize companies have sought my services to limit the possibility of employee conflict. To this end, I design contracts that ensure compliance with state and federal regulations. In order to protect companies from future litigation, I customize employee agreements such as:
- Confidentiality agreements
- Noncompete contracts
- Severance agreements
- Employment contracts
In addition to helping companies avoid litigation, I help area entrepreneurs starting a new business. Small companies have gained from partnering with me as they proceed through the formation process. In consultations, I advise business owners on the advantages and disadvantages associated with establishing an entity such as:
- Sole proprietorship
In order to promote efficiency in daily transactions and procedures, I also tailor bylaws that delineate operating standards, compliance, duties assigned to officers and directors, and procedures for meetings, among other protocols.
