A Focus on Preventing Litigation
For a business owner, prevention of employment-related litigation is vitally important.
A business must stay focused on profitability and growth. Owners cannot afford to
be dragged into lengthy lawsuits on a regular basis.
Sullivan Taketa LLP helps businesses avoid legal conflicts with employees before
claims and litigation have a chance to develop. Based on decades of experience as
corporate counsel for major corporations, our attorneys are able to offer a perspective
in the area of employment law that is sensitive to the unique needs and concerns
of management. We deliver the comprehensive, preventative employment-related legal
counsel that our clients need and expect.
Sometimes, however, investigations and lawsuits are unavoidable. Our California employer
rights attorneys are skilled at building strong defenses for employers. We enforce
arbitration agreements and take action to protect employers' rights with regard to
confidentiality agreements and covenants not to compete, among other issues.
Our Employer Rights Attorneys Are Available as Cumis Counsel, Co-Counsel or Independent
Sullivan Taketa LLP provides consulting services on management and employers' rights
to other attorneys and law firms as needed. We also serve as mediators and expert
witnesses in employment matters and employment disputes. Please contact our law offices
