Employment Agreements and Executive Compensation

Our attorneys have negotiated numerous severance agreements and employment contracts over the years. We have experience in negotiating a wide range of issues that arise in severance agreements, with both government and private-sector employers. This includes addressing issues such as confidentiality provisions; non-compete and non-solicitation provisions; allocation of payments; letters of reference; and mutuality of releases, and other problems that can come up in the termination of an employment relationship.

We also are experienced in negotiating individual employment agreements (contracts) for private-sector managers and executives. This includes issues relating to non-compete and non-solicitation provisions; the grounds for ending the contract before its term or otherwise not renewing the contract; the provisions for severance pay when the employer terminates the contract; damages for breach of the agreement; and other contentious issues that can arise in establishing a contractual employment relationship.
