Employment Dispute Resolution: When Experience Matters.

Our focus is on the resolution, not the dispute. And that makes all the difference.

At Hutcheson Bowers LLLP, we litigate and arbitrate cases involving discrimination, harassment, and retaliation under the myriad of state and federal employment regulations; theft of trade secrets under TUTSA; non-competition and non-disclosure agreements; inevitable disclosure; tortious interference; employee raiding; claims for severance, compensation, bonus and commissions; breach of contract; fraudulent misrepresentation; breach of fiduciary duty; defamation; labor arbitrations and union strikes; and FLSA and other wage and hour issues.

We also assist employers with disputes at various state and federal agencies, including the EEOC, NLRB, OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor and the Texas Workforce Commission.
