Angelique R. Vincent-Hamacher

Angie Vincent-Hamacher’s practice is focused on employment counseling, employment litigation and alternative dispute resolution. She routinely counsels clients on a wide range of employment issues, including federal and state employment law compliance, policy development and implementation, new hire processes and background checks, employment agreements, noncompetition, nonsolicitation and nondisclosure covenants, employee discipline, leaves of absence, terminations, severance agreements, reductions-in-force, business reorganizations, disability accommodations, wage and hour issues, commission and bonus plans, and other day-to-day employment and human resources issues. With her extensive experience counseling employers, Angie assists clients in implementing effective strategies to minimize their litigation risk and optimize overall business and employee productivity.

Angie also assists employers in conducting internal investigations of employee complaints and providing preventative training to managers and employees on topics, such as anti-harassment and anti-discrimination. Additionally, she regularly handles matters and investigations by administrative agencies, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, various state and local deferral agencies, the U.S. Department of Labor and the North Carolina Department of Labor.

Angie also represents management and executives in employment litigation in state and federal courts, including cases alleging discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful discharge, breach of noncompetition and nonsolicitation agreements, misappropriation of trade secrets, unfair and deceptive trade practices, and related business claims.

Additionally, Angie is a Certified Superior Court Mediator and serves as an effective third-party mediator for parties in employment disputes both prior to and during litigation. She facilitates settlements and assists parties in resolving conflicts amicably without incurring the significant time and expense that may often be associated with protracted litigation.
