Our Practices

Employment Litigation

Working directly with business owners, managers, and human resource professionals, our attorneys represent employers in state and federal courts in Wisconsin and in administrative hearings throughout Wisconsin and the rest of the country. As business attorneys and active members in organizations focused on human resource management, we understand the issues faced by employers dealing with the complexities of the employer-employee relationship.

The risk of litigation is an ever-present factor in today's employer-employee relationship. Countless lawsuits are filed by disgruntled employees every year. Employers faced with a complicated employee claim need effective, informed counsel to efficiently resolve the issue. Our attorneys bring a wealth of experience to this area and are equipped with practical solutions. Skilled in utilizing alternative dispute resolution techniques, our attorneys work with the client to avoid protracted litigation costs.

Specifically, Ruder Ware offers an employment audit designed to identify employee-related policies needing revision, definition, or update.
