Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story.
You're IT The Boyd Law Group, PLLC!
Three questions with Anne Boyd Marketing Manager, The Boyd Law Group.
Why Did You Start Your Business?
Labor and employment laws are changing drastically, including changes in non-compete law, sexual harassment law and wage and hour/overtime issues. The firm’s founder, Patrick Boyd, worked for the largest employment defense firm in the country and started The Boyd Law Group, PLLC to better serve small businesses and help individual executives with their evolving employment law needs. Often, intelligent early negotiations can help avoid costly and taxing litigation and our firm often helps small businesses and executives towards that end. When litigation is essential, of course, we have over a decade worth of successful and high-profile trial experience.
Finish this sentence in regard to your business: I Wish I Could….
On the business side, I wish we could establish relationships with small business owners and start-ups earlier. Good HR policies and procedure foundations can help avoid costly fines and mistakes. As to executives, I wish there was not quite so much reticence to hire counsel. Templated contracts and severance agreements are often draconian, and often negotiable, with the assistance of qualified attorneys
What Is Your Best Selling Product Or Service?
Most often businesses need updates to their handbooks and employment contracts (because the law changes often) and assistance with progressive discipline and evaluation of their employees. Individuals need help with their job offer agreements - whether that be with new employment contracts or evaluating the adequacy of a severance offer. For both sides, non compete issues have growing importance and inevitably come up with new clients.
