OUR AREAS OF PRACTICE.
We are continually adapting new areas of practice as the law, legal landscape and economic conditions continue to evolve. While our firm was formed to focus on estate planning and estate administration, we quickly responded to our clients' needs to handle business planning, transactions, and litigation matters because our clients wanted to continue working with us relating to other aspects of their lives and businesses. In many firms clients are passed on to other practice groups or referred to other law firms to handle issues outside of the trust and estate area. Our clients wanted to "keep it in the family" where they had developed a sense of trust, so we expanded and now are proud to provide a wide array of related services for our clients.

With every economic upturn and downturn, employment law matters become an increasingly pressing concern. If you are managing your own closely held business, your most important asset may be your people. But how secure are your people? Do they have access to confidential information, or more importantly, how secure is the information that your employees can access, such as trade secrets, customer lists, and processes and procedures? Have you as the business owner done everything you can to secure that confidential information? Further, if key employees leave, what can they take with them to a competing venture?
At BSK, we can help you conduct a confidentiality audit, in addition to putting enforceable employment agreements and restrictive covenants in place. And if an employee leaves, we can make sure he or she does not unfairly compete, steal business opportunities, or wrongfully poach customers and other employees from your business.
