Training & Compliance

Thompson & Horton attorneys recognize that a well-informed and trained workforce is critical to good decision-making. We believe regular training is a cornerstone of helping to prevent potential legal issues. Thus, our attorneys regularly provide training to our clients, covering a range of topics. We typically use slide presentation format with an opportunity for interactive discussion. We also build in hypothetical situations to help focus the audience on finding solutions. We provide large group seminar training as well as more in-depth, interactive course style training in the following areas:

  • Employment law
  • Disability law, including the IDEA, Section 504, and the ADA
  • Open government issues
  • Competitive bidding, purchasing, and other business issues
  • Real estate
  • Elections
  • Nepotism and conflict of interest issues
  • Constitutional law issues related to students and employees

Our attorneys have extensive experience in public speaking at the state and national level. We are creative and flexible and understand that effective training requires knowledge of not only the subject matter but also the needs and interests of the trainees.

Our commitment to our clients does not begin at the onset of a transaction or litigation or end once those have been completed. Our attorneys provide regular consultation to clients as well as presentations on current legal trends to establish practices to help prevent litigation and potential liabilities. We provide governmental clients no-cost training seminars and workshops.
