One of the firm’s greatest sources of accomplishment comes from its record of success in counseling and advising its clients on the best ways to avoid becoming a party to adversary proceedings.  We accomplish this through our training workshops, monthly newsletters, audits and legal advice as matters arise.  We were “pioneers” in the training field by creating “consortiums” of agencies.  Our Employment Relations Consortiums (ERCs) are comprised of over 500 cities, counties, special districts, schools, community college districts, and state universities as well as other public sector agencies in all parts of the state.  Annually we provide training to thousands from line employees and first line supervisors to City Managers, County Executives, General Managers, City Attorneys, County Counsels, Presidents, and Heads of School.
