At the Buglione Law Firm, we have come to understand the businesses that our clients are involved in. Employee related issues can steal time and drain energy from progress towards achieving our clients' business goals. Our employment attorneys focus on providing clients with a consolidated approach to their complex human resource and employment law issues. By working together, our team brings adverse capabilities to help our clients maximize one of their most important assets – their employees – while minimizing risks.
From recent legal developments to current trends in employment and compensation practices, we provide clients with informed advice that can help them resolve thorny issues and keep them on track – legally. The counselling advice that we provide, and programs we help you implement, reflect the best practices in dealing with an ever changing and challenging landscape of statutes, regulations and court decisions.
At the same time, we understand that one size does not fit all. We learn about each client’s business and culture so that we can help with strategies, practices and policies that best fit our clients’ unique needs and style. Often the best results, based on this acquired knowledge – are visible; for example, in many cases a dispute is diverted because a successful strategy or best practice is devised and implemented early on.
Our law firm represents a broad cross-section of the business community, encompassing a wide spectrum of industries, including manufacturing, retail and consumer products, high tech, energy, life sciences, health care education, hospitality, construction, and professional services. In addition, we represent a multitude of municipal and public entities in this area of practice.
