School districts, colleges, governments, and businesses all confront difficult and sensitive workplace issues. These situations involve not only complex legal questions, but also delicate political and social issues that may draw public and media interest and scrutiny. Effective resolution of these matters requires legal skill as well as experience and sound judgment. Thompson & Horton clients have recognized the unique skills our lawyers possess in handling these sensitive matters.
We have assisted a large municipality in assessing its fire department following reports of alleged harassment and discrimination and advised the city regarding workplace practices. We have investigated high-profile complaints against top administrators at a state university and allegations of financial misappropriation in a large urban school district that had been the focus of significant public and media attention. We are uniquely qualified to advise clients on policy matters that have high-profile or public scrutiny attached to them.
We bring the same level of experience, thoroughness and judgment when asked to investigate and counsel on less public matters involving allegations of employee or officer wrongdoing.
