Business Litigation Attorneys Serving
Kansas and Missouri

Employment Disputes

Litigation with current and former employees can be an expensive disruption to your business.  Our firm defends Kansas and Missouri employers against claims of discrimination, harassment, hostile work environment, retaliation and wrongful discharge.  We do not work with insurance companies, leaving us free to focus our entire strategy on the one party who matters – you.  Geiger Prell makes the cost of litigation predictable and manageable through flat-fee and result-based pricing arrangements, without compromising the tenacity or quality of our defense.

Our firm also prosecutes former employees who breach contracts, misappropriate trade secrets, take property, or maliciously interfere with business relationships.  We enforce non-competition, non-solicitation and non-disclosure agreements.  When your top producer breaks his contract and takes your customer list and secret sauce to a competitor, we are the attorneys to force him – and your competitor – to be accountable.  Conversely, we defend companies and individuals whose competitors seek to use their own restrictive employment agreements as weapons when they know they cannot compete fairly in the marketplace.

Quick, decisive action must often be taken to determine the rights and obligations of the parties to an employment relationship. We have experience dealing with the following issues, among others, for our clients:

  • Unpaid wages
  • Unpaid commissions
  • Retaliation
  • Wrongful discharge
  • Discrimination
  • Hostile work environment
  • Non-competition agreements
  • Client non-solicitation agreements
  • Employee non-solicitation agreements
  • Misappropriation of trade secrets
  • Tortious interference with business relationships or expectancies
  • Tortious interference with contracts
  • Trade name or trade dress infringement
  • Conversion or theft of company property
