The Watkins Firm serves as corporate general counsel for many companies here in San Diego. The work of corporate general counsel is much more than resolving business disputes and guiding executives and Board members through litigation and legal issues. As your corporate general counsel in San Diego the Watkins Firm works to ensure corporate governance and compliance objectives are established and fulfilled. We also work with San Diego employers to ensure strong policies and procedures, employee handbooks and hiring practices not only comply with the law but help to prevent the potential for future litigation.
California is a complex state to conduct business within. Your corporation must be compliant with all associated federal, state and local regulations, licensing and laws. This applies to ADA compliance, employment and wage and hour issues, as well as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPPA, international privacy rules and security regulations to name a few. Governance and compliance extends to the procedures to establish and operate a board of directors, annual meetings and board meetings, preparation and regular updates to corporate documents and by-laws, advice on legal issues from shareholder disputes to employment litigation as well as external business to business disputes with suppliers, business partners or customers. Compliance work also instructs and reinforces the legal and ethical behavior of all who work for your corporation.
Corporate litigation exposure continues to increase in 2017. Plaintiff’s attorneys pursue a variety of issues from wage and hour and unpaid overtime allegations to ADA and FMLA compliance. The Watkins Firm defends San Diego employers, corporate officers and board members in all legal action including class action lawsuits and shareholder actions. We protect corporate intellectual property and defend the trademarks, copyrights and patents of our clients against infringement.
