Employment Law: Businesses big and small face a wide array of employment law issues. Employees may claim they’re owed wages, benefits or have been the victim of discrimination. Employees with access to customer lists, marketing or sales information or trade secrets may need to sign anti-compete or anti-disclosure contracts. Mr. Liu can help employers and employees through the thicket of laws and regulations impacting your business and livelihood.
Contract Law: If your business needs a contract, you can access a number of forms online or cut and paste one you may have already used. But will that result in a legally binding contract that best fits the situation and fully protects your interests? Mr. Liu can create or review a draft contract for you so you won’t make an expensive mistake you’ll regret later on. If you’re involved in a dispute over a contract you or your business has entered into, Mr. Liu can protect your interests and help you reach the best possible outcome.

Real Estate: If you’re involved in a commercial real estate transaction, whether it’s a purchase, sale or lease, don’t make the mistake of thinking you know all there is to know and you have all your bases covered. Obtain legal advice before you or your company signs on the dotted line to help you avoid trouble. If a dispute over a past transaction requires legal assistance, Mr. Liu can also represent you and defend your interests.
