Casner & Edwards

Renee Inomata

Renee Inomata helps companies and executives navigate complex employment laws so they can successfully achieve their employment goals and mitigate risks associated with employment issues. She advises clients on a wide range of high-level, complex employment-related matters, and solves sensitive employment situations with an understanding of the client’s culture, risk adversity and business goals. Clients often rely on her as their outside employment counsel to address a variety of day-to-day workplace issues, including disciplinary, discrimination, leave, and wage and hour issues. Renee also helps companies formulate best strategies for transitioning employees from competitor entities, minimizing risk in re-classifying workers, rolling out updated restrictive covenant agreements, revising and implementing bonus and commission plans.

Renee also advises companies on workplace policies, noncompetition, nonsolicitation, confidentiality and executive retention agreements, as well as due diligence related to employment matters in corporate transactions. In addition, Renee represents executives with employment transitions and helps them evaluate employment options and compensation arrangements.

Prior to joining Casner & Edwards, Renee was the Chair of Burns & Levinson’s Employment Group, and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee.
