Megan Batchelor represents employers, both as a counselor and litigator, primarily in Texas and the Southwest. Her counseling practice is focused on minimizing the risk of litigation and reducing the liability for employers by providing day-to-day advice on a wide range of employment matters. She advises clients on hiring and firing decisions, EEO matters, enforcement of personnel policies, leave issues, accommodations, drug testing laws, classification of employees and other wage and hour matters, safety regulations and governmental investigations. Megan routinely drafts and reviews personnel policies and employment, non-competition, non-disclosure, separation, release and severance agreements. A significant part of her practice involves advising business owners, in-house counsel, and human resources and operations professionals of the risks posed by contemplated actions and providing practical guidance in light of legal considerations.

Megan also maintains an active litigation docket. A considerable part of her litigation practice is in seeking and defending against expedited injunctive relief based on non-competition agreements and trade secret misappropriation. Megan also frequently litigates retaliation, discrimination and wrongful discharge actions before both courts and administrative agencies. She is experienced in managing discovery, drafting pleadings and engaging in motion practice, and conducting legal research.

Search Tips:

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.

Operators

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".

Searches are not case sensitive.
