Conover Law Offices represents clients in civil rights, employment, consumer, commercial, and international litigation.
Our civil rights practice focuses on employment, education and police misconduct. We represent employees and students who have suffered discrimination based on race, disability, pregnancy, gender, age, religion, and national origin, and those who have exercised their rights and have been retaliated against. We handle a wide spectrum of matters from sexual harassment to breach of employment contract; from whistleblower suits to seeking reasonable accommodation of a disability; and from First Amendment violations to excessive force claims. We also represent employees and small businesses in drafting and negotiating employment contracts and severance agreements.
In our commercial and international practice we represent small businesses in contract, trade secret, and other business disputes. In addition to litigation in state and federal courts, we represent clients in international disputes, arbitrations, mediations and appeals.
Our small size and focus allow us to provide clients with individual attention, cost efficiency, and creative solutions.
