Congratulations to our new Associate, litigator Eddie Taia
Eddie continues to make a significant contribution to the growth of the region’s premier law firm and to serving the commercial litigation and mediation needs of the area. Franklin Law partners are pleased to be able to welcome Eddie to a more senior position within the firm.
Eddie is an experienced and well regarded litigator. His expertise is in finding pragmatic solutions for employers and commercial operators and in working to prevent commercial contract and employment issues escalating.
Inevitably there are situations when disputes cannot be settled amicably. When this occurs and a solution cannot be found outside of court, Eddie is a competent litigator, highly experienced at representing clients at all levels of court
Being a part of a disagreement that may end up in court can be very stressful to most people. Having someone who can be considered, respectful and committed to the task at hand is important, and Eddie is well regarded in this by his peers and his clients.
Eddie’s advice to business people and employers in looking to reduce the likelihood of encountering legal issues is to be on the front foot.
“Businesses that have contracts that will hold up, employers who are aware of their obligations and have robust policies in place will likely be better placed to avoid issues arising. Employers who are familiar with their obligations under the law, and are equipped with that extra bit of knowledge can go a long way in helping avoid what can be costly and lengthy disputes,” he says.
Eddie represents clients in court on a regular basis. His court work often involves dealing with difficult and complicated cases, sometimes it involves dealing with unexpected and tricky matters of employment and employer/ employee relationships.
