Employment

The workplace can be a challenging environment where differences in management and communication styles and competing economic agendas can easily lead to conflict. The Bowen Law Group has extensive experience counseling clients in employment matters, and has handled virtually every type of employment litigation in both state and federal court as well as hearings before administrative agencies.

A major component of the firm’s labor and employment practice is a focus on prevention.  The firm works closely with our clients to design bulletproof workplace policy and procedure manuals. We are well-versed in the problems that arise in the workplace and are experienced in providing practical advice based upon the law and the client’s needs. We take pride in our ability to help clients minimize their risk of employment litigation. However, when disputes become unavoidable, we have the talent and expertise to defend employers aggressively and efficiently in all types of litigation and arbitration.

The Bowen Law Group is experienced in representing employers in wrongful termination cases filed in state and federal court or with administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  In addition, we are experienced in drafting, reviewing and litigating disputes arising from employment agreements and non-compete agreements, as well as drafting and reviewing severance agreements.

The firm’s objective in employment cases, like all of the firm’s practice areas, is to provide unsurpassed legal services to clients in a timely and cost-effective manner. If the relationship between employer and employee becomes contentious, we have a reputation for having a tenacious and creative approach to litigation.  We are adept at applying pressure and force at the appropriate time.
