Whether you are an employee or an employer, the employment relationship is one of the most important legal relationships that you will enter into. It can have dramatic implications for you, your family and/or your business. It’s not “just business”; this is your livelihood. You want to be sure that you understand your rights and obligations. That’s where we come in.
At Rudner Law, we see employment relationships as an extension of your interpersonal ones. This is true regardless of whether you are an employee, a multi-national corporation, a start-up, a family business or a non-profit organization. We recognize that interpersonal relationships are complicated. This is why we focus all our energy and resources into mastering the practice of Employment Law, also referred to as HR or Workplace Law. Our lawyers have substantial knowledge, expertise and experience in Employment law and pride themselves in focusing on the practical and business concerns of our clients.
But we make sure that we look beyond just the law and work with our clients to help them make well-reasoned decisions based on all the relevant factors.
From the “courtship” to the “marriage” to the “breakup” and everything in between — we make it easy for employers and individuals to make the best decisions every step of the way. Once we understand your circumstances, your concerns and your goals, we explain the legal issues and options so that you can make the best decision for you. We then work with you to design a cost-effective strategy to meet your needs. We prioritize problem prevention, but where they can’t be avoided, we zealously advocate on your behalf, be it in negotiation or litigation. We work with employers and employees and also act as neutrals, enabling us to view situations from every perspective. This allows us to credibly anticipate the thoughts and actions of “the other side” and build the most persuasive arguments we can.
We are a tech-savvy, paperless law firm, making us “unicorns” in the legal field! Our team uses technology to its fullest in order to allow us to provide top-notch service to our clients without being chained to our desks. We can access every detail and document from anywhere, which means we can respond promptly to inquiries without having to say “I’ll check when I get back to the office”.
Instead of the old way of sharing documents, where multiple versions of electronic files are sent back and forth, we use tools that allow for real-time collaboration from wherever you are. We also use technology to have documents signed digitally where possible.
You can help by sending all documents to us in electronic format, with filenames that make it clear what they are. We will let you know if we need a hard copy.
No law firm can be completely paperless, but we are pretty close. So much so that the whirring of a printer/copier turns heads throughout our office. This approach is not only efficient but environmentally sustainable as well!
To ensure the safety of all documents, we have invested in secure, encrypted servers that protect the privacy and integrity of your information.
