Buchalter attorneys partner closely with clients to provide broad, protective counsel that minimizes risk exposure. Our critical risk-management solutions allow clients to focus on managing their businesses while we manage the details of their employment problems. We work closely with business management to ensure workplace compliance and an immediate response when conflict arises. We prepare and implement employee handbooks, advise on personnel matters and union relations, negotiate employment and severance agreements and defend lawsuits. We also represent Taft-Hartley benefit plans. Our clients vary from closely-held companies to major financial institutions, restaurant chains, manufacturers and retailers, with offices and locations nationwide.
