Labor & Employment

Boardman & Clark LLP provides a full range of services for its municipal, school district and private sector employer clients. Because of our size and state-wide presence, we have the knowledge, expertise, experience and capability to serve and meet our clients’ needs, regardless of size, location or union status.

As employment counselors, we prefer to focus on helping our clients avoid problems before they
develop, but we are also experienced litigators, skilled in the efficient and practical resolution of  legal disputes once they arise.

As legal counsel, we view our role as becoming an integral part of your human relations team. A
central part of our delivery model is to maintain a personal approach and relationship with our  clients, while at the same time delivering the highest level of services in the most efficient manner.
