Handling a variety of litigation matters, Emily Green focuses her practice on employment law issues, including trade-secrets disputes; non-compete, non-solicitation, and non-disclosure disputes; employment discrimination, wage and hour disputes, wrongful terminations, OSHA violations, FRA violations, and retaliation cases. A portion of Emily’s practice consists of counseling employers on various employment law issues and crafting enforceable employment contracts.
Emily is also pioneering a niche practice area—wedding and event vendor law. When planning her own wedding, she recognized that several vendors lacked legal representation with industry expertise. Providing a one-stop shop, Emily and others within the firm offer these clients assistance with business formation, licensing requirements, website requirements, copyright/trademark guidance, zoning questions, lease negotiations, employment matters, services contracts, and if needed, dispute resolution.
Emily welcomes intellectual and legal challenges. She enjoys constantly learning and honing her skills, delving into research to help solve client issues, and crafting sound, clear documents that best help her and the firm advance clients’ interests. She finds it gratifying to advise organizations at all stages, from drafting essential starting documents to helping ensure operations run smoothly to working to resolve any problems or conflicts that arise.
With an emphasis on clear communication, Emily takes a direct, transparent approach and delivers honest answers and analyses that don’t sugarcoat difficult situations. She likes to custom-tailor her services because, as she says, each one is unique. Emily studied human relations as an undergraduate, and she continues to place a premium on developing relationships that last beyond the time it takes to resolve an issue. She is always a strong representative of and advocate for diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Away from the Office
Emily loves spending time with her family, traveling, and tackling DIY projects with her husband, Dr. De’ Shauris Bradford, her son and nieces. In addition, she devotes ample time to giving back to the community, which she believes is an essential and rewarding responsibility.
