Helping you develop and maintain a satisfied and productive workforce is the primary mission of our labor and employment lawyers. We want you to spend less time and resources managing unproductive and disgruntled employees and more time and resources managing your business.

One way we help you achieve this objective is by keeping you up-to-date about and in compliance with labor and employment laws. By staying compliant, you avoid, or at least minimize, employment disputes that can seriously disrupt your business and lead to costly litigation.

Clients in Virtually Every Industry

Garvey Schubert Barer represents both large and small employers. We have deep experience in multiple industry sectors, such as healthcare, assisted living, organizations serving the developmentally disabled, Indian tribes, higher education, shipping, manufacturing, construction, retail, restaurants, insurance brokerages, small public entities, consulting, financial services and professional services.

Tools that Solve Problems and Control Costs

To help control client costs, Garvey Schubert Barer has developed reliable, practical tools to solve common HR problems. As an example, The Win² Alternative Dispute Resolution process cuts through most formal legal processes to enable parties to resolve employment disputes amicably and cost-effectively soon after a claim is made.

Meeting Challenges with Innovative Solutions

We believe our role as lawyers is not to focus on what you cannot do, but instead to help you find innovative ways to achieve your objectives while avoiding unnecessary legal risks. When you decide to take risks, we help you manage them.

People Management

We all understand that compliance is an important part of the HR function. However, of equal importance today is how employers treat and motivate employees. Employers who manage employees well have a more satisfied, productive workforce and fewer employee lawsuits. Our legal advice and training focus on both compliance and people management. This focus helps you establish and maintain a strong HR function that can significantly improve your operations and bottom line.
