At Pearlman, Brown & Wax, we recognize that running a successful business and managing employees can at times be challenging. The firm's Employment Law Department is skilled in dealing with personnel issues that commonly arise in the workplace, from hire to fire and everything in between. The firm has developed successful strategies for handling these often emotional and contentious employment issues with an eye towards litigation avoidance. We have extensive experience investigating claims prior to the onset of litigation and advising management on the proper course of action in an effort to prevent litigation. When lawsuits cannot be avoided, our team of experienced litigators realistically assesses the Company's risk and provides targeted advice for possible settlement and litigation strategy, always keeping in mind the goals of the Company and management. Our zealous litigators have demonstrated the ability to obtain dismissals before trial through aggressive motion practice in both state and federal Courts.
