This emergent scarcity means businesses will face more consequences of the complex regulatory and legal frameworks governing water use and water quality.
Michael Best’s Water team understands those issues. We guide clients through the heavily regulated, politically sensitive environment surrounding the management of, investment in, and development of water resources.

MICHAEL BEST STRATEGIES
Where business and government meet
Guiding clients through transactions
National surveys show that a shockingly high percentage of employees take information with them when they change jobs—often in violation of a number of state and federal laws. As the electronic transfer of information has become easier, the temptation for incoming and departing employees to bring proprietary, confidential, and trade secret information with them to their new jobs can be irresistible, creating substantial risks for employers. Michael Best attorney Eric Rumbaugh will update attendees on the legal landscape and focus on practical actions and best practices businesses can adopt to protect their goodwill and intellectual property, while also reducing legal exposure.
Eric advises clients in all areas of labor and employment law. With a practice that is national in scope, he is particularly active in litigating matters involving trade secrets, non-competition agreements and related disputes. Eric has a nationally recognized practice in the area of contingent labor and regularly prepares and reviews policies, procedures and contracts and litigates contested matters for users and providers of temporary employees, consultants, independent contractors and other contingent talent.
