At WHGC, we provide innovative, proactive processes and procedures designed to keep you out of court. We have a variety of tools for you to avoid disputes and litigation relating to hiring, termination, discrimination, harassment, wages, trade secrets, non-circumvention, non-disclosure agreements, and other matters.
In addition to drafting comprehensive employment contracts anticipating a wide range of situations, we develop oversight plans to prevent embezzlement and breach of employment contracts. We also craft policies that relate to non-executive employees, such as termination procedures.
Should events require you to pursue or defend a claim, you can count on us for our familiarity with local and national law, as well as access to resources on international law. No matter where you do business, we can help. Frequent bases of claims include discrimination based on age, religion, or other protected class, failure to pay wages, breach of employment contract, pension issues, misappropriation of trade secrets, unfair competition, and harassment. The firm is experienced in trial as well as negotiation. Our attorneys investigate claims, depose witnesses, take statements and draft demand letters and of course go to trial when necessary. We also counsel our clients in risk avoidance and assess all the potential costs and benefits of proceeding with litigation.
International in scope
We serve companies and individuals in Asia, Latin America, Europe, and the U.S., providing knowledgeable counsel to domestic and foreign clients. We are adept in the legal practice areas that help companies grow both in the United States and overseas. The international aspect of what we do is extremely important to our clients. We help you manage growth by avoiding legal problems related to the diverse employment laws of different countries.
We have attorneys in key growth areas in the U.S. such as the Silicon Valley. We also have accomplished lawyers in Taiwan, China and other nations whose economies are rapidly expanding as well as nations with established business cultures like Japan and the European Union.
