Employment Law

Whether you are an employer or an employee, Kelly & Co. has the experience and knowledge to advise you on all of your employment-related issues. Employment-related matters do not always necessitate litigation, but when they do the lawyers at Kelly & Co. are prepared, having successfully appeared before all levels of employment-related boards, tribunals and courts on behalf of their clients.
