Many law firms advertise that they provide labor and employment advice, and it can be difficult to identify one firm’s actual strengths over another’s.
From the beginning of our law firm, Ice Miller has a tradition of strong labor and employment lawyers who work with both public and private employers as they deal with government agencies, individual employee issues or unionized workforces.
At Ice Miller, our labor and employment lawyers are focused on helping our clients create better workplaces. In achieving that goal, we understand what employers really need from their labor and employment counsel:
Practical real-world advice about solving problems that can expose employers to lawsuits or other claims
Uncomplicated ways to comply with the complex and ever-changing laws governing the workplace
Creative and collaborative relationships with long-term clients to meet their business goals and internal expectations
Strong, cost-effective advocacy
The depth and skill to go the distance when disputes cannot be resolved on the front end, whether those disputes end up in complicated employment litigation or in a union organizing drive
We don't start a relationship by telling a client what it needs from us, or what it must do; instead, we ask what the client wants from its lawyers, and what it wants to do. With our collective experience and determination on behalf of our clients, Ice Miller's labor and employment lawyers provide the highest level of sophistication in the labor and employment law practice combined with the practical real-world needs of employers across the United States and abroad.
When you work with an Ice Miller lawyer, you can be assured that you won’t hear what you “can’t” do. Rather, we listen to your needs and find solutions to help you do what you want to do, while at the same time, evaluating your risks in the workplace. We assess compliance and safety issues before they become serious and effectively defend them if a claim or lawsuit is filed.
Unlike firms limited to labor-law only, we also enjoy the depth of a full-service law firm and the tremendous resources available to our labor and employment law clients that firms without these resources cannot provide.
Employment compliance and decisions regarding difficult employment matters can be challenging. At Ice Miller, our belief is that the needs of the employer and its employees can never be sacrificed for a “you can’t do that” attitude. Your business should focus on your business, and we will keep that as our focus as well.
Our Firm's guiding principle is that the surest way to avoid the costs and aggravations of workplace disputes resulting in employment lawsuits or union organizing drives is to ensure those disputes do not arise in the first place. See here how Ice Miller is Leading "Like a Boss.'
