Hamblett & Kerrigan represents both employers and employees in all matters relating to employment. Our practice includes advising and counseling employers and employees, as well as providing representation in New Hampshire and Massachusetts state and federal courts and before administrative agencies in employment matters.

We represent both large and small companies in employment matters. Our representation of employers includes:

  • Counseling large businesses, small businesses, human resource managers and other employment professionals with respect to legal issues in connection with employment, including those involved in hiring, firing, employment contracts, severance contracts, and performance reviews of employees.
  • Defending employers against claims of racial discrimination, gender discrimination, sexual harassment claims, wrongful discharge claims, and other employment related litigation.
  • Drafting and reviewing employment manuals, employee handbooks, benefit descriptions, and other employment related documents to assure that they comply with New Hampshire and federal law.
  • Drafting, reviewing, and negotiating employment contracts, severance contracts, non-compete covenants, and other contracts in connection with employment.

The Employment Law Practice Group at Hamblett & Kerrigan also represents employees, particularly in such complex matters as employment contract negotiations, covenants not to compete, severance negotiations, and in employment related litigation. We represent individuals before administrative agencies as well as in both state and federal court for claims of significant economic damages as a result of racial discrimination, gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and wrongful discharge.

At Hamblett & Kerrigan, our attorneys will work with you to help you understand the legal issues involved in your case, will counsel you as to potential outcomes, and will strongly advocate on your behalf to help you achieve your goals.
