Employment Issues

Whether you are an employer or an employee, you likely expect your employer-employee relationships to go smoothly. It can be a huge shock when your agreement is not followed, when you are not treated with the respect you are owed, or when you encounter disputes over things like payment or termination. At Neve Webb, we understand the importance of defending your rights when employment matters go wrong. Our goal is to minimize the impact that a legal issue has on you or your business. Lawsuits can take up time and resources. We work to settle disputes efficiently and favorably. Neve Webb represents employers and employees in cases such as:

Fraud & Liability

When someone fails to fulfill the terms of a contract, engages in deceptive practices, intentionally harms the business interests of another, or is accused of such actions, a legal dispute often arises. These situations can be extremely stressful and overwhelming! You need solid legal representation to ensure that your interests are protected.

Mergers & Acquisitions

A merger or acquisition can be an exciting but tumultuous time in the growth of a company.

The attorneys at Neve Webb are here for you. We can help guide you through the process to achieve a smooth and understandable transaction. And unlike many attorneys who oversee mergers and acquisitions, if litigation is needed at any point, the trial lawyers at Neve Webb are there to represent your interests in court if needed.
