Baird Quinn LLC is a boutique business and employment law firm in Denver, Colorado, that provides dynamic, high-quality counsel and representation to individual and business clients across the United States. From our many individual clients to the world’s largest employer, our employment lawyers represent clients in litigation, arbitration, administrative proceedings, investigations and other high-stake disputes, with a particular focus on cases involving employment law and other commercial disputes. We leverage our employment law experience at large law firms, Fortune 500 companies, and governmental agencies (such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) to provide clients with excellent, practical and cost-effective representation.

Our labor and employment lawyers understand that employment disputes are often governed by complex and fluid federal and state statutes, regulations and court decisions. Employers may be unaware of existing laws and, as a result, encounter significant compliance issues and significant potential liability. Employees find it virtually impossible to understand their rights and responsibilities without the assistance of knowledgeable counsel. Baird Quinn's Colorado labor and employment lawyers regularly assist clients in successfully navigating this often complex, uncertain and increasingly litigious regulatory landscape.

We offer unmatched representation and unparalleled individualized attention to clients with employment law issues in areas such as wrongful discharge, sexual harassment, retaliation due to protected activity, Family and Medical Leave Act violations, non-competition and non-solicitation issues, Wage and Hour compliance and litigation, whistle-blower actions, employment and non-competition agreement negotiation and enforcement, and all forms of prohibited harassment and discrimination.

Our uncompromising and rigorous advocacy has the singular focus of achieving our clients' goals and protecting our clients' interests.  We pride ourselves on the many strong client relationships we have built over the past 30 years utilizing these philosophies.  

Our offices are located in the beautiful Bushong Mansion near downtown Denver, Colorado. We invite you to contact one of our Denver labor and employment law attorneys to discuss your employment law issues.  You may obtain additional information regarding our Denver employment lawyers at the following link.  See Baird Quinn Attorneys
