She regularly advises on employee benefits and executive compensation; design of stock option plans; modification of employment agreements and related procedures; implementing strategies regarding employee profit sharing; drafting and negotiating employment, noncompete, and nondisclosure agreements; and negotiating, implementing, and terminating individual employment agreements and collective bargaining agreements.
