NAVIGATING THROUGH LEGAL AND REGULATORY COMPLEXITY FOR THE SUCCESS OF YOUR BUSINESS

Our Lawyers Assist Businesses Throughout The Hudson Valley / NYC Area With Their Day-To-Day Legal Needs

In today’s climate, businesses need the advice of lawyers on almost all fronts. Companies are under extensive pressure from regulators in a variety of areas. They must keep up with the barrage of ever-changing laws and requirements that affect their organization. Each day they also are faced with a myriad of details that can benefit from legal review and consulting, including staff hiring and training, contracts, leases, purchases, and insurance. Mistakes can be expensive. The lawyers at Sholes & Miller LLP help businesses create a healthy workplace environment and keep their legal matters running smoothly.

HELPING BUSINESSES AVOID REGULATORY AND COMPLIANCE ISSUES


The regulations businesses must adhere to can be complicated and voluminous. We help clients minimize the risk of violations and litigation by advising them of their regulatory responsibilities and assisting them in identifying any areas that may need attention. Our experienced attorneys then develop compliance programs and policies to correct any deficiencies and avoid a legal dilemma. Once the program is finalized, we assist with staff training to make sure everyone in the company understands what is required of them.

OPTIMIZING EMPLOYEE RELATIONS


In addition to regulatory matters, we also counsel businesses on employee relations matters, such as:

Hiring and Recruiting Practices
Employment Contracts
Creation of Employee Handbooks
Staff Training Sessions
Employee Management
Performance Assessments
Leave Policies
Discrimination and Harassment Policies
Termination Considerations
Severance Packages

ASSISTANCE WITH DAY-TO-DAY TRANSACTIONS


Even routine, daily business issues require legal assistance and review. We regularly provide counsel relating to facility and equipment leases/purchases, as well as insurance matters.

REPRESENTATION IN BUSINESS DISPUTES & COMMERCIAL LITIGATION


Sometimes, despite the best preparation, businesses find themselves involved in legal disputes. In addition to the day-to-day transactions, we also represent businesses who are seeking relief through, or defending themselves in, a legal action – from investigation and negotiation to mediation and trial.

Let the lawyers at Sholes & Miller assist your business with all of its legal needs.
