Our employment lawyers recognise that pragmatic and commercial advice provided in a timely manner is essential in order to resolve disputes and maximise professional and personal opportunities. We also know when a robust approach can be most effective and are used to dealing with the largest employers to secure the best deal possible for our clients.
We are often asked by large national law firms to act for senior executives because they know they can safely recommend our expertise and service. We ensure all aspects of employment agreements are properly considered, including financial compensation and other benefits (share schemes, pension plans, bonuses, long term incentive arrangements, insurances), notice periods and timing of departure, garden leave, director resignations, announcements (including stock exchange announcements) and minimising post-termination limitations on future work. We also always seek to secure full payment of our clients’ legal fees by the employer.
In addition, we have extensive experience in the use of settlement agreements in commercial transactions, particularly in relation to corporate restructures and business sales and purchases. We can provide independent advice to executives quickly and effectively in these circumstances to ensure that commercial timescales are not jeopardised.
