McGuire, Wood & Bissette


The Employment and Labor Law Team at McGuire, Wood & Bissette provides tailored, practical guidance for all of your employment-related needs, whether you are a manufacturing employer with more than 200 employees or a non-profit starting out with just five. Employers rely on us to handle all aspects of employee-relations issues. Our Employment and Labor Law Team can draft policies, procedures and contracts; provide compliance training, advice and audits; and represent you in front of governmental agencies and state and federal courts. Employment law is not one-size fits all. Instead, to provide comprehensive employment advice, we need to understand your business to help you manage one of its most important assets — your workforce.
