Labor and employment is a constantly developing practice area that allows Kim Daniel and her team to collaborate with clients on everyday challenges as well as litigate and resolve significant business crises. “As the country’s healthcare delivery system and overall economy changes, the policies and practices of all successful employers need to continually evolve,” Kim says. “Maintaining a skilled, engaged and high-performing workforce is important and sometimes legally challenging.”
Kim’s practice is diverse in scope. She has defended employment law cases of every variety, including wrongful termination, discrimination and harassment, Fair Labor Standards Act matters, and noncompetition disputes. Kim also regularly handles medical staff issues and hearings for healthcare entities and healthcare professionals.
For hospital mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, she regularly advises on workforce transition, due diligence on employment-related matters and related compliance issues.
Her approach is simple. “I listen and learn as much as possible about each client and their current issues,” she says. “Together, we partner to develop individualized, practical and timely solutions to their challenges that fit their budget, timetable and risk tolerance. I’m interested in solving problems today and forming strategies for future success. At Hancock Daniel, our team services multiple practice areas for many clients, and our ability to understand all the factors that impact the client’s situation and develop the best legal solution for each client’s current situation is unparalleled.”
