Key Harrington Barnes PC Helps You Run Your Business Smarter

Small and medium-sized businesses make up the backbone of America's employers. Unfortunately, they also tend to take the brunt of the abuse against it. Business owners struggle to create a work environment where their employees can thrive while managing the cost of doing business and keeping up with government regulations. It is a juggling act that is hard to maintain. Once one of those balls falls and conflict with employees or government regulators occurs, many employers give up.

At Key Harrington Barnes PC, we believe in fighting the good fight and standing up to big government, labor unions and unscrupulous plaintiff-side attorneys who try to destroy what you have built. More importantly, we help you avoid the problems that cause litigation in the first place by helping you structure your business so it is in compliance with federal and state laws while creating an environment that allows your employees to thrive as they work to grow your business.

We know that businesses of all sizes need strong advocates but many cannot afford the benefit of in-house counsel. Our firm provides the same quality representation that many major corporations receive at a price that smaller businesses can afford. We offer a variety of fee arrangements to accommodate the needs of your business.

A Local Firm With a National Reputation

Based in Dallas, Texas, our firm helps employers all over the nation with a variety of employment law issues, including those involving unions and the government. We are exceptional trial lawyers with considerable experience in employment litigation, but we prefer to help you find ways to prevent these conflicts from occurring in the first place. Our lawyers work with you to solidify employee relations so you benefit from a contented workforce that is more productive and has fewer turnovers.

We do extensive work nationwide in Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) defense. Companies that have experienced an on-site accident frequently need an experienced lawyer to defend their current practices against government investigators and injured employees. We also help employers ensure that their facilities are in compliance with OSHA regulations.

We understand how hard you work to keep your business running smoothly. There are myriad issues that stand in the way of that goal. We partner with you to help you and your business overcome those obstacles and bring prosperity to you and your employees.
