Prevention & Risk

Although litigation is a risk of doing business, some if not most workplace disputes are preventable. Through careful management and activation of sound business policies and processes, JJH Law assists its clients in promoting a healthy working environment which thereby reduces the probability of workplace claims. In addition to being there at those times you need advice regarding an employment matter, JJH Law offers affordable models of employment policies and handbooks for companies large or small.

Preventative and Risk Assessment Practice

While most consider a physical checkup with a doctor to be an annual necessity, far fewer engage an attorney for a legal checkup to protect their financial health. This is in spite of the fact that companies with employees are often at risk for expensive litigation that could have been prevented.

One of JJH Law’s core practice concentrations focuses on providing employers with the sound advice necessary to prevent an expensive legal battle.

Review the following key areas of a legal checkup as you consider preparing a check-up from the JJH legal team:

  • Employment Agreements – Are your company’s contracts current or do they need revision?
  • Non-Compete Contracts – Relevant to your current climate?
  • Employee Handbooks – Are they current and being followed?
  • Hiring Processes – Compliant with federal and state laws?
  • Termination Procedures and Policies – Effective and with minimal legal liability to the company?
  • Licenses – Are they current?
  • OSHA Regulations – Which rules apply to your business? Are procedures in compliance?
  • Leases & Property Agreements – Are renewals in order?
  • Litigation Risk – Are procedures in place to limit risk to prevent a protracted legal affair?
  • Contracts – What is your policy for legal review before executing agreements? Compliance issues? Are you agreements current and do they reflect accurate and practical applications?

The Portland lawyers at JJH Law understand that the combination of your diligent management abilities, and their expertise in promoting sound legal policies will greatly reduce the possibility of costly litigation.

When hiring the law firm of JJH Law, you receive more than innovative legal advice with practical applications, your company also benefits from cost effective prepackaged model employment policies and handbooks that can be applied to your business.

Contract Drafting and Risk Assessment for Commercial Transactions

CIO.com reports that 40% to 70% of HR outsourcing relationships go sour while other estimates demonstrate a 25% failure rate. These numbers reflect the reality that these critical business propositions are probably not worth taking without legal advice, preferably before the journey even begins. The team at JJH Law is ready to assist your organization with both preventative measures before the relationship begins, as well as recovering damages after a deal goes south.

Preventative Measures
Preventative measures, also known as mitigation strategies, are designed to limit future problems by creating a rock-solid plan for dealing with nonperformance or other foreseeable issues. Like insurance, the goal is to have a structure in place that anticipates potential problems by implementing solutions in advance, like you find in a well-written contract.

Alongside these critical preventive considerations is the need to structure any deal in such a way that participants are unlikely to default. The lawyers at JJH Law have extensive experience and critical resources available for your business so you can enter any transaction with clarity.

By having the attorneys at JJH Law analyze a transaction and draw up the contracts, you will have the assurance going forward that you are protected from many unknowns you would encounter without experienced legal advice. With your expert in place at the start, you will minimize the risk of hidden but fundamental flaws in an agreement, such as granting rights to another party in some way that you neither wanted nor anticipated. The same holds true when the contract is handed to you. The team at JJH Law will spring into action to review the agreements for your company’s protection.

Contingency Strategies
While preventative strategies are utilized before the scene of an accident, contingency strategies are designed to either help stem the losses or employ litigation tactics to recover damages when something goes wrong. Rest assured, the Peal District legal team of JJH Law will be at your service analyzing, negotiating, and litigating as your situation and preferences dictate.

Keep in mind that preventative measures, carefully utilized before the deal, may be costly upfront but can be much less expensive than contingency strategies after the deal goes awry. JJH Law can tailor its services to your budget and you may find that a combination approach works best.

Don’t make the mistake of waiting until a problem develops before litigation is required. Contact JJH Law today for the peace of mind that comes from knowing your company’s legal concerns have been scrutinized by an experienced and diligent law firm that cares enough about your business to be there before a problem develops.
