The costs associated with attracting, incentivizing, and retaining the best talent make proactive planning and management business imperatives.

Our sophisticated team provides pragmatic solutions that manage liability risks and protect an employer’s interests, reputation, and business objectives. With one of the largest management-side labor and employment practices in the Mountain West, we can quickly and efficiently draw on the expertise of more than 40 attorneys with significant experience in virtually every area of labor and employment law.

We partner with our clients to ensure that best practices are in place and legitimate business reasons motivate employment decisions. To help avoid costly litigation and business distraction, we talk through day-to-day employment issues and help you handle urgent workplace situations to prevent employment crises from arising. To minimize the exposure and liability that can result from non-compliant or simply ineffective processes, we design tailored training programs and conduct voluntary audits that help you identify and fix problems before an outside agency or lawsuit forces you to do so.
