The Spencer Fane Labor and Employment attorneys provide service exclusively to business management leaders in human resources counseling, employment litigation, and traditional labor law, helping to identify risks and equip them with the tools necessary to minimize the time and resources spent on legal matters. Our goal is to help clients prevent employee issues, so they can focus on their business objectives instead of managing employment disputes and legal claims.
With this priority, Spencer Fane lives out the well-known Benjamin Franklin quote, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Whether our attorneys are counseling a mid-sized manufacturing company on the employee policies essential to smart growth or guiding a Fortune 500 restaurant group toward OSHA compliance, our foresight steers clients away from obstacles and toward success. We know what employment issues keep business leaders up at night, and because we aim to reduce challenges, we prioritize training business leaders to implement best practices and understand compliance needs related to FMLA, ADA, FLSA, and more. We also assist clients who work with a unionized labor force and union agreements.
Our attorneys have a depth of experience across many industries, including transportation, manufacturing, health care, energy, financial services, real estate, education, and restaurant industries, among others. This insight prepares us to guide each client through their relevant labor and employment matters to minimize potential liability and put them in the best position to defend against litigation when necessary.
Our firm has the depth and insight to help clients in all areas of employment needs. Whether we’re counseling and training employees across an entire company, helping growing companies address human resources structure and compliance, or providing business leaders with critical guidance as demands increase on the HR and supervisory staff, our goal is to keep clients in compliance, help them prevent employee problems, and stay focused on making their business successful.
