Employment

We advise privately-held businesses in Colorado and the U.S. on federal and state employment laws, including advice and counsel about the nuances of Colorado's employment laws. Our deep, diverse experience in this area of the law comprises all aspects of employment ­- both as counselors and litigators ­- and the complex claims and administrative actions that regularly arise. These include regulatory compliance and claims, as well as litigation and disputes, and questions involving issues such as:

  • Non-competition agreements
  • Employment contracts
  • Wage and hour issues
  • Colorado's marijuana laws

While many of our clients are Colorado-based small business employers, we also represent major companies with offices in other states. Regardless of where they are headquartered, their size or industry, we advise on how to interpret the ever-changing employment regulations and statutes – local, state and federal – that govern hiring, managing, disciplining and terminating employees. 

Our employment lawyers have years of experience with litigation and alternative dispute resolution. In addition, we are proactive in advising clients on policies and practices to avoid ending up in the courtroom.
