The Employment Law Practice:
Bone McAllester Norton has a team of lawyers experienced in handling all aspects of employment-related disputes, representing both companies and individuals. While many law firms represent only companies or only individuals, we find that our experience as both plaintiff and defense counsel gives us a unique perspective that helps us to better advise and guide our clients, whether they are business entities, executives or employees.
We advise executives and individuals regarding their rights and responsibilities associated with their employment. This sometimes means helping an employee make a graceful exit and pursuing compensation for past service and loyalty or advising an individual of post-employment restrictions and how that affects their flexibility with new employment. Employment problems can be extremely stressful and distracting. Our careers comprise a good portion of our time and thus a fruitful and fulfilling work experience is extremely important. If an issue arises within your employment, having competent but conservative legal counsel to advise you of your rights and responsibilities is an important part of finding a solution.
