Employment law is an ever-changing matrix of confusing, and sometimes conflicting, state and federal laws.  I try to help my clients not get lost in the maze of minutiae, and stay focused on their objectives.  For corporate clients, I provide counsel to stay compliant with workplace regulations and to handle potential disputes with an eye towards avoiding litigation.  An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  For employees, I advise with respect to employment agreements, matters of compensation, and termination scenarios.  In addition, I frequently advise both technology companies and entrepreneurs on matters involving issues unique to intellectual property such as the assignment of inventions and the enforceability of non-competes.  I have brought employment discrimination cases before the Equal Opportunity Commission.

Representative Matters

  • Represent both employers and employees with respect to disputed termination scenarios.
  • Prepare employment policy and procedure manuals for clients.
  • Advise both employers and employees with respect to drafting and implementing non-competition agreements.
  • Advise companies with respect to drafting standard employee agreements such as offer letters, invention assignments, confidentiality agreements, and termination agreements.
  • Represent employees in matters brought before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.
