The Watkins Firm has decades of experience as employer defense attorneys serving San Diego and Southern California. We only represent employers, and provide general business counsel for our business clients to help them to avoid litigation, and defend them in any dispute that may arise. California is known as a court system that tends to lean toward the perspective of the employee in litigation matters. The Watkins Firm has a strong record of success defending employers in disputes and lawsuits associated with, but not limited to:
- Wage and Hour Issues
- Unpaid Overtime Allegations
- PAGA Defense
- Employee Misclassification Hearings and Lawsuits
- Employment Contract Disputes
- Enforcement of Trade Secret and Non-Compete Agreements
- Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Disputes
- Employer Retaliation
- Discrimination Claims
- Accusations of Sexual Harassment
We also represent employers who are accused of wrongful termination, and represent their interests in ERISA or benefit related disputes or lawsuits. Our attorneys work proactively to help our clients to come into compliance with all employer-related laws and regulations on a federal, state and local level. We provide review of important internal documents such as policies and procedures, employee handbooks and employment contracts. We help to train internal management to ensure they understand and put into practice the legal requirements of employment related laws.
Our clients appreciate our unique approach to litigation. We aggressively pursue leveraged negotiations, and alternative means of resolving a dispute. The majority of lawsuits and business litigation cases are resolved or settled prior to heading to trial. We work with our clients to establish specific goals and objectives for the dispute or lawsuit. We then take the actions necessary to resolve or settle the matter in the shortest possible time frame and in a cost-effective manner.
