Egan Law Firm’s practice focuses on managing workplace relationships: anticipating troubles before they occur, putting systems in place to give employers the strongest negotiating position, resolving any problems that may arise, and litigating a resolution if everything else fails.
ELF primarily represents small businesses that do not have a large human resources department or a team of in-house lawyers. “From our perspective, whether a business is ‘small’ is not about how much money it makes,” Susan Egan, ELF’s founder explains. “ELF’s clients are as varied in size as a small group of doctors, venture capital firms, and moving companies. We want to understand our clients’ businesses and provide legal services where and when it will be useful.”
Egan has practiced as an employment lawyer for more than 30 years, representing large corporations as well as employees. “The interesting thing about employment law,” Egan observes, “is that every case ultimately involves misunderstandings among people, which is much more interesting than misunderstandings about documents or transactions.”
To provide comprehensive services to its clients, ELF often works with other employment lawyers through a network it has created in the “cloud.” “We pay particular attention to technology, which helps us deliver legal services in an efficient and cost-effective manner,” Egan says.
Egan, who is AV Preeminent® rated by Martindale-Hubbell®, provides a high level of personal service and attention to all of her clients. Joining Egan at the firm is Sandra Dawes, who has worked in employment law for seven years.
