Preventing and Resolving Employment Disputes

Our lawyers represent both employers and employees in all types of employment matters. If a client needs to enforce an existing non-compete agreement or draft a handbook for the human resources department, we can help. If a client has been harmed because of discrimination or sexual harassment, we can help.

Advising employers and employees in Massachusetts

Employment law is complex and requires detailed knowledge of state and federal regulations. Our attorneys advise business clients about their options in any situation. We offer an honest assessment about the enforceability of a contract or the legality of a company rule. We also counsel individual employees who have been offered an employment contract or agreement by their employer, suggesting changes that could benefit our client. As trial attorneys, we represent clients in employment discrimination and harassment claims before administrative agencies and state and federal courts.

Our attorneys provide cost-effective legal services to businesses, employees, and non-profit institutions. For more information about our employment law practice, contact our Boston, Braintree or Mansfield office. Call (781) 930-3127.
