JBR Law Group, LLC. recognizes that the best way to defend against labor and employment law claims is to proactively prevent them from arising. We have partnered with clients ranging from national organizations to start-ups on resolving workplace issues, developing or updating of employee handbooks and policies that comply with federal, state and local laws, and structuring the necessary executive, employee or contractor agreements and policies that protect key business interests. Additionally, we have experience conducting internal investigations into alleged policy violations in a manner that is holistic and aimed at supporting workplace environments. We additionally conduct customized compliance trainings on site and anywhere in the U.S. Our preventative strategies have proven effective in minimizing the risk for potential litigation and improving workplace culture.  We are also keenly skilled in counseling and resolving employment disputes and avoiding litigation and drastically reducing related costs.

In the event of litigation or administrative claims, JBR Law Group, LLC. also provides a full range of management-side defense services in Illinois federal and state courts and administrative venues, at times also handling such matters in various neighboring jurisdictions. The firm has successfully defended and resolved federal sexual harassment and discrimination claims, wage and hour litigation, whistleblower and retaliation claims in single plaintiff and asserted class litigation matters, and have aggressively pursued claims alleging business injury such as breach of restrictive covenant, trade secret misappropriation and conversion. Our team remains committed to remaining at the forefront of the everchanging landscape of labor and employment litigation so that we may continue providing timely critical advice and obtaining successful outcomes for our clients. 

In addition to our risk management services and counseling, we offer legal help with any specialized transactional labor & employment needs and have experience preparing and negotiating employment contracts, severance agreements, trade secret protection agreements and other restrictive covenants, and collective bargaining agreements.
