Labor and Employment
Employment and labor laws are numerous, complex and ever changing. In a fast-growth business, it is not unusual for issues to arise between employers and employees. Berman Fink Van Horn understands the intricacies of resolving employment issues — before a lawsuit is filed — and will protect your business from future threats.

Executive Career Transitions. In select circumstances, Berman Fink Van Horn counsels executives and other management level employees during career transitions; helping to enforce their legal and contractual rights when employers fail to honor their obligations. This often includes counseling clients on the enforceability of restrictive covenants in employment agreements and obtaining relief from over broad covenants imposed on them unfairly by former employers.
