Employment

Overview

Responsiveness is the hallmark of our practice. We understand that the employer-employee dynamic is critical to the success of a business and, with more than 25 employment attorneys—many of whom spent decades honing their skills at management-side law firms and corporate in-house employment departments—we stand ready to enhance and/or protect your business with effective, business-oriented legal counsel.

Our approach is simple: we learn our clients’ businesses to identify and resolve issues before they become problems, preventing the loss of time and money associated with extensive legal proceedings. When the worst happens, we have achieved tremendous success on behalf of our clients by obtaining early dismissals of lawsuits before trial. We routinely represent businesses of all sizes—from Fortune 500 companies to startup entities—in all aspects of the employment relationship. From pre-employment screening, including those that occur under the Fair Credit and Reporting Act, through hiring and discipline to termination, from training to counseling, from internal complaints to administrative complaints and full-blown litigation, Taylor English responds to client needs while always keeping in mind the business interests that are our clients’ highest priorities.

We recognize that, at times, clients will benefit from alternative billing arrangements in those circumstances, and have successfully partnered with clients to implement flat fees for certain projects, including training, audits, handbook preparation, and certain agency proceedings and litigation situations.

“They’re very impressive - experienced lawyers working with sophisticated clients.”
