Counseling Businesses


Davis Malm's employment attorneys advise the firm's business clients and their human resources personnel daily, offering practical responses to our clients' employment-related inquiries. We are dedicated to being available, knowledgeable, and up to date on the applicable law, and we work hard to respond in a cost-effective manner to our business clients' day-to-day concerns. We always have an eye on risk-reduction strategies when we answer our clients' inquiries.

Our counseling practice runs the entire gamut from recruitment through termination, relating to compensation issues, discrimination, harassment, contract issues, employee privacy, drug testing, job safety, accommodating handicapped employees, architectural accessibility, benefits, discipline, and documentation concerns. We also have extensive experience resolving employment issues arising in difficult merger and acquisition situations, as well as in reduction in force and plant closure circumstances.
