How We Help

The relationship between an employer and an employee has become increasingly complex. Occasionally, situations arise where you will need the guidance of an employment law attorney to understand your rights and responsibilities. Employment law is a highly regulated and specialized field with far-ranging implications for businesses and their employees. As the laws governing labor and employment are constantly changing, Kelleher & Buckley, LLC has a dedicated team of labor and employment lawyers who focus on keeping clients informed and protected.

Our attorneys are leaders in the field, publishing educational articles and lecturing on employment law. As a full-service labor and employment law firm, our team represents both employers and employees from startups to Fortune 500 companies.  We advise clients on employment contracts like severance agreements, executive compensation agreements, confidentiality agreements and non-compete agreements. We also represent clients in connection with other employment claims, including Family Medical Leave Act violations, Fair Labor Standard Act violations and workplace discrimination and harassment claims.

Non-Compete & Confidentiality Agreements

There is always a risk when hiring an employee or developing a business relationship with another party that they may use your business information to begin a competing business or work for a competitor once the relationship comes to an end. Kelleher & Buckley can help you develop or enforce a non-compete or confidentiality agreement to protect your company and prevent this from happening. Most importantly, we want to provide you with some peace of mind.

Employment Agreements

As an employee or an employer, it’s essential to document the terms of the employee/employer agreement. You need a detailed employment contract summarizing all specifics in a distinct manner, allowing for clarity for all involved parties. Our attorneys know the devil is in the details. They take the time to review every detail, no matter how small.

Severance Agreements

The formation or dispute of these important documents specifying the terms of an employee’s departure from a company can benefit greatly from the counsel of a skilled employment law attorney. When tensions are high, clients can rely on our experienced attorneys to be a reassuring ally in their corner.

Meet Our Team of Experienced Employment Law Attorneys

After a tremendous 22 years together, David Buckley and Andrew Kelleher, founding members of Kelleher & Buckley, LLC, have decided to amicably split into two distinct law firms. The creation of these new firms will allow each company to follow their individual roadmap to success and maximize their clients’ experience.

We are excited to announce both partnerships: K&B equity member Robert Holland will partner with Andrew Kelleher to form Kelleher + Holland, LLC. Similarly, equity member Linda Fine will join David Buckley to create Buckley Fine, LLC. All of our current attorneys, paralegals and staff will be taking this journey with us.

The separation is effective September 1, 2020, at which point Kelleher & Buckley will no longer be providing legal services. During this transition, you can continue to expect the high quality of service you have always received from us as we shift to our new partnerships. Current and past clients, please check your email for additional details.

In the meantime, we have developed an FAQ to address any general questions you may have. As always, please feel free to contact us with any specific questions or concerns.

Thank you for your loyalty over the last 20+ years; we appreciate your support during this transition and look forward to advising you in the future.
