Minimizing workforce issues so you can focus on making your businesses successful.

Capes Sokol’s Employment Law practice attorneys assist companies and employees in all industries with a broad range of workforce issues.

Our experienced attorneys provide preventative counseling; assist with documenting employment issues and business practices; counsel on compliance with federal and state laws; advise on separations and other risk management issues; investigate allegations of workplace misconduct; draft and prepare employee handbooks and other HR policies; and defend employers in administrative agency proceedings, and in litigation in state and federal trial and appellate courts.

Our attorneys represent organizations of all types and sizes, including Fortune 500 companies, publicly owned and privately held businesses, municipalities, educational organizations, health care providers, law firms, and religious and charitable organizations.

In addition to representing a wide range of employers, our attorneys represent executives and other employees in negotiating favorable employment and separation agreements and advise on issues related to non-competition agreements. Our breadth of experience also allows us to counsel such employees on other employment related issues from both legal and practical standpoints.

Our approach is to avoid disputes and litigation through preventive practices, and as a result, we often act as day-to-day business and legal advisors to our clients. This hands-on, preventive approach allows us to assist clients in formulating efficient, long-term workforce management plans and results in reduced legal costs to clients.

In the event of litigation, our attorneys have vast experience representing employers and employees in all stages of the litigation process. Although we strive to resolve disputes quickly and efficiently, we have earned a reputation as aggressive litigators in the courtroom. We have litigated complex, high-profile disputes and understand that a business must be concerned about not only its financial exposure but also its reputation with the public and its employees and customers.
