Human Resources Consulting
The key to managing a successful employer-employee relationship lies in prevention rather than reaction. Human resources departments play a vital role in managing employment and personnel matters. They also shoulder immense responsibility in implementing measures for compliance and risk management.

Preventing Disputes And Avoiding Costly Claims
In addition to representing employers in litigation, our firm designs proactive strategies for employers to mitigate disputes before they arise. We act as legal coaches and counselors, evaluating risks, reviewing personnel policies, drafting employment contracts and developing internal protocols for conducting investigations and responding to complaints.
The firm’s robust business law and employment litigation practices give us valuable insight into how to identify potential sources of liability. Our guidance can help prevent costly, time-consuming litigation by detecting, evaluating and resolving potential employment claims such as:
- Wage and hour violations
- Misclassification of employees as independent contractors
- Sexual harassment claims
- Discrimination claims
- Wrongful termination claims
Our lawyers also routinely conduct employment-related training sessions and HR seminars in both California and Nevada.
