Employment Counseling & Litigation

Bullivant Houser Bailey's Employment Law practice addresses the needs of public and private employers across the region and the nation. Our attorneys focus on strategies that help clients remain productive, avoid litigation, and to successfully defend when litigation occurs.

A Preventive Approach to Employment Law
Federal and state regulations continue to alter the employment landscape; we work closely with our clients to respond with a preventive approach. We help HR personnel, supervisors and business owners establish best practices to help ensure compliance with continually evolving employment laws, as well as avoid lawsuits.

Employment Litigation, Dispute Resolution, Arbitration
Bullivant lawyers provide extensive counseling and advice with a goal of reducing unnecessary litigation. Still, litigation is a fact of life in business; our attorneys have a successful track record of resolving cases for reasonable value as well as trial defense verdicts. We believe it is our responsibility to function as a trusted advisor, providing clients with responsive service and keeping everyone fully informed through each stage of litigation.
