Kenny Broodo is board certified in labor and employment law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and represents management in diverse markets such as small business, energy, technology, manufacturing, insurance, retail, wholesale, service, sales and marketing, private schools and universities, medical, entertainment, automobile sales and food. He also represents executives in contract negotiations and disputes. Kenny is especially adept at helping small to mid-size businesses maximize the opportunity to achieve employee stability and productivity, while avoiding litigation through proactive consulting, auditing, policy updates, disciplinary documentation and contract drafting. But, he aggressively defends against lawsuits when they come.
Kenny frequently advises on, prepares and negotiates executive and employment contracts, as well as confidentiality and non-compete agreements. He also has a niche practice dealing with six- and seven-figure employee fraud and embezzlement matters, along with ample experience aiding employers in uncovering employee deception and obtaining the full panoply of legal remedies – both civil and criminal.
Employers often rely on Kenny to arbitrate or litigate their contract disputes and complex discrimination, retaliation and harassment cases; to litigate ERISA-related benefit issues such as COBRA, severance and disability; to handle OSHA claims and investigations; and to defend against wage and hour class actions, as well as whistleblower and qui tam cases.
Clients describe Kenny as thoroughly and reliably focused on one thing: solving the problem – by deploying the necessary measures to outflank the current situation, and then helping the employer take steps to prevent it from coming their way again. His long-term clients rarely find themselves in court over employment issues, but when they do, they find that they have a record to stand on, and an able, stubborn advocate for their cause.
You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander. A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.
Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used. For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.
AND and OR may be used in a search. Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance."
The + and - sign operators may be used. The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".
To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks. For example, "Project Finance".
