A Message From Our Founder & Managing Member
Francine Griesing
As businesses around the country reopen their doors, employers and employees are adjusting to unprecedented changes that require additional care and strategy. In today's WelcomeLaw Wednesday, Francine Griesing addresses how we can transition into our new reality more smoothly. In her article, she emphasizes the importance of treating employees with respect and dignity even if you have to let them go. She also introduces an article from the Firm's Marketing Manager on how to expand and shift the focus of your legal practice as client needs change.

Francine Griesing discusses a disturbing trend by employers who vent their frustrations against employees by essentially kicking them to the curb rather than severing them with kindness and understanding. She addresses the reputational and legal risks of this behavior and the importance of making difficult decisions in a way that best positions organizations to survive the current situation and rebound in the future.

Marketing Manager Emily Griesing shares the steps to take if you're thinking about transitioning to a new or related practice area to address society's (and your clients’) shifting needs.
