Norris Law Firm PLLC represents employers and other business clients in the following areas:
Employment Law Defense And Counsel
Employment law covers the entire range of the employer-employee relationship, from the initial application to the final termination. There are many laws that cover compensation, benefits, the workplace environment, and the protection of trade secrets and company resources. Depending on the company’s size, the employer may have other obligations to employees dealing with disabilities or serious health conditions affecting themselves or family members.
Many of the problems in this area can be avoided through early planning and development of sound employment policies and employee agreements. When disputes arise, it is critical to get an early start in developing a sound litigation plan to resolve the case on favorable terms. Mr. Norris has experience representing employers in all of these areas.
The majority of Mr. Norris’ civil litigation practice involves employment lawsuits and disputes between businesses. Because civil litigation almost always involves a business dispute, you should approach your litigation from a business perspective.
Mr. Norris will help you navigate the complexities of your legal dispute and develop a strategy that makes good economic sense for you and your business. In addition, he is a Certified Fraud Examiner through the ACFE, which is valuable in trade secret matters, non-compete disputes and other disputes involving complex documents or data.
Successful companies offer a wide range of benefits to their employees. These benefits are often subject to complex state and federal regulations. This means that they can be complicated and costly—especially if they are not designed or administered correctly. Mr. Norris will help you design, administer, and review your employee benefits, from your paid time off policy through your group health plan.
Even the most careful companies sometimes find themselves in lawsuits involving employee benefits. This may involve a state law claim for an unpaid bonus or a federal lawsuit for benefits under an ERISA plan.
Starting a new company is more than filing a form with the Secretary of State. Too many companies start with a good business idea but run into trouble because of easily avoided legal missteps. A good business strategy requires a clear understanding of the rights and obligations of the owners, employees, vendors, and customers.
