From due diligence to post-acquisition, there are various labor and employment issues that businesses should pay attention to in order to ensure smooth corporate transactions and integrations. Employee classifications and trade secret protections are two of several issues we explore in this episode with labor and employment law experts Kevin Cloutier and Shawn Fabian.
Kevin Cloutier is a partner in the Labor and Employment and Business Trial Practice Groups at Sheppard Mullin. He is the Leader of the Firm's Non-Compete and Trade Secrets Teams. Kevin is a member of the Firm’s Diversity and Inclusion and Compensation Committees and acts as the hiring partner for the Firm's Chicago office. Kevin’s national practice focuses on all areas of labor and employment law and business litigation, with an emphasis on high-stakes, employment-related litigation and proactive investigations and counseling of management-side clients.
Shawn Fabian is a partner in the Labor and Employment Practice Group in the Sheppard Mullin Chicago and New York offices. Shawn works closely with the firm’s Corporate Practice Group on mergers and acquisitions to evaluate the labor and employment liabilities associated with a specific transaction; develop pragmatic, business-oriented solutions to issues that arise during the course of fast-paced transactions; and structure sophisticated executive employment, separation and retention bonus agreements in connection with such transactions.
