Human Resources

Clark & Gotzler’s CG Works

Managing human resources is time-consuming, requires skill and expertise, and is ever-evolving. Clark & Gotzler, Attorneys at Law, recognizes that many HR issues do not require legal counsel – and the associated costs. Savvy leaders carefully select the appropriate solution for a particular task or challenge. In short, there is a time for legal advice and a time for HR guidance.
From day one, our clients requested services beyond the typical scope of employment law into the larger and related realm of human resources. It is clear that there is significant need for these kinds of services. Our solution is CG Works.

CG Works provides this HR service offering as a natural extension of our employment and HR legal services. We continue to add experienced employment lawyers and non-attorney professionals with human resources expertise to our team of the best and brightest in HR.

With this mix of HR and employment law experience, in-house insight, devotion to meeting client needs, and laser focus on all things HR, the Clark & Gotzler team is uniquely qualified to help manage the full spectrum of human resources needs.
