Protecting Employers’ Rights And Interests
Today’s workplace is filled with often complementary and sometimes competing desires and demands. Employers want an efficient and orderly environment in which they can conduct business profitably by avoiding worker strife, regulatory compliance errors, and employee litigation.
At Mitchell & Sheahan, P.C., our attorneys have more than 100 combined years of experience, ready to advise and represent owners and operators of businesses, public entities and not-for-profit organizations. We understand what lies at the bottom of workplace issues, applying creative, intelligent solutions to take on issues head-on, always looking for the most efficient and cost-effective solutions – through negotiations when possible, but never afraid to go to trial when necessary.

Ready At The Negotiating Table, Ready For Trial
When a dispute is taken to an administrative agency or goes to court, we rely on our years of trial practice experience to give our employer clients the strongest possible defense from the claim’s inception through litigation, trial and, if necessary, an appeal. We are always focused on our client’s business interests and goals. As a small business ourselves, we are sensitive to the special needs and challenges faced by the small to medium-sized enterprise.
