Employment Law

In today’s business climate, managing employees has become more complicated, due in part to the fact that some employees may work for you directly, while others are considered self-employed or work for a third-party employer. Each of these relationships calls into play state and federal employment law, as well as employee policy and contract issues.

In addition to providing operations counsel, our attorneys can represent your corporation, small business, or limited liability partnership in a variety of employment law-related disputes.

We handle cases involving:

  • EEOC claims
  • Wrongful termination or failure to hire
  • Unemployment compensation disputes
  • Workers’ compensation defense
  • Workers’ compensation claims for employees

Business Disputes

The free market works because we are able to trust others to keep their bargains and act in good faith. If your company is involved in a contract dispute, we can pursue remedies, including compensatory damages, punitive damages and, in some cases, specific performance. We are accomplished negotiators as well as seasoned trial lawyers.


Whether you need to collect an unpaid debt or your business needs help dealing with creditors, Thomas, Birdsong, Mills, McBride & Osborne, P.C. can provide effective debtor-creditor representation. We have extensive experience serving both debtors and creditors and can create a legal strategy capable of withstanding the opposition.

Sales & Purchases

Business transactions can be done on your own but without an attorney to guide you, you put your business at risk of lawsuits and compliance issues. Our Rolla business lawyers can ensure that your company’s sales and purchases are safe, legal, and beneficial to your business.

Having been in business ourselves for over 40 years, we understand how demanding operating a profitable business can be. Let us help you by providing the legal solutions your business needs.
