Developing Strategies That Meet Our Clients’ Individual Needs
At HMBR, we take our direction from the employers and employees that we represent. Our clients come to us with unique concerns and objectives and we collaborate with them to develop individualized case strategies tailored to their specific needs. Whether we are representing an employer who is trying to safeguard their business assets when an employment relationship has ended or an employee who is being subjected to an unfair and unenforceable condition in an employment contract, our lawyers work to diligently enforce and protect our clients’ legal rights.
HMBR lawyers appreciate that prolonged litigation can be expensive and disruptive. When it is in the best interest of our client to do so, we aim to settle employment disputes as early on as possible through negotiation, mediation and arbitration. When these types of matters cannot be successfully resolved outside of court, our lawyers develop powerful litigation plans for our clients, backed by solid experience and proven results.
