Boston law firm Casner & Edwards, LLP has made another strategic hire with the addition of veteran employment lawyer, Renee Inomata, who joined the firm as a partner. Inomata was formerly the Chair of Burns & Levinson’s Employment Group, and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee.
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. Inomata 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.
Inomata 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, Inomata represents executives with employment transitions and helps them evaluate employment options and compensation arrangements.
John T. Morrier, Casner & Edwards’ Managing Partner, said, “As the employment landscape continues to shift, our clients have an increased need for hands-on legal and regulatory counsel. Renee deepens our employment practice bench by bringing significant experience handling complex matters for diverse clients, from multinational companies to individuals. She is a well-respected and accomplished attorney, and we are certain she will be a valuable asset to our clients.”
Inomata commented, “Casner & Edwards’ reputation for having smart, practical, and skilled lawyers focused on client service was a significant draw for me. Their collaborative culture and involvement in highly sophisticated matters has been a plus. I look forward to working with my new colleagues to expand the breadth and depth of the firm’s employment practice.”
