Should your projects require intellectual property counsel, our attorneys have considerable experience in domestic intellectual property law, including creation, protection, transfer of rights and enforcement. Our practice is broad, based on an extensive background in patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and related areas of law.
Rodey's employment law practice represents local, regional and national employers. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in all federal and state laws affecting the employer-employee relationship. We have substantial experience representing employers in a wide variety of employment matters in federal and state courts and before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the New Mexico Human Rights Division, the New Mexico Workers' Compensation Administration and other agencies. We also advise clients in non-adversarial aspects of labor relations including employment terminations and structuring grievance procedures.
When you do business in New Mexico, you almost certainly will require informed tax counsel. Our tax practice covers the entire spectrum of federal and state taxation, including tax controversies, both at administrative levels and in litigation. We have extensive New Mexico state tax experience, including corporate and individual income taxes, gross receipts taxes, film incentive tax rebates, property taxes and excise taxes. We provide state and local tax advice to in-state, out-of-state, and multi-state businesses, as well as representation at audits, administrative appeals and, if necessary, in court. We represent individuals, corporations, limited liability companies, and partnerships in all aspects of tax and business planning.
Our litigation lawyers have a distinguished history of trying and winning jury and non-jury cases in all of New Mexico's state and federal courts. We have a reputation of successfully arguing cases on appeal in the state and federal systems. We work with our clients to achieve the best possible settlement when a resolution short of trial is appropriate. We always seek to obtain the very best results for our clients at every stage of the legal process.
