Frequently Asked Questions
Can you advise me in relation to a settlement agreement?
Here at Myerson, we have a team of six qualified specialist employment lawyers, highly experienced in advising on Senior Executive terminations and negotiating settlement arrangements, particularly those arrangements that are complex. We act for executives on a nationwide basis, advising by telephone or video conferencing.
My remuneration package is complicated, can you still help?
Myerson is a full-service law firm and we often work with colleagues in our corporate team to ensure comprehensive advice including around issues such as shareholdings, share options, LTIPs and complicated bonus schemes.
We also understand the importance of practical advice in relation to issues such as garden leave and post-termination restrictions. We routinely negotiate around these issues and other practical matters such as the continuation of benefits and insurances. We can also assist with tax efficiency.
What is your recommended approach to exit arrangements?
In some cases, it is necessary to take a very robust approach with employers and occasionally we will involve litigators in our dispute resolution team.
However, from experience, we know that the best outcomes often result from an approach that is commercial, pragmatic and pursued in a timely fashion. We know that, for Senior Executives, as well as securing the best possible financial package, it is imperative that the exit process protects reputation and integrity and facilitates a successful transition to the next step of your career. Over 95% of the cases, we deal with result in agreed settlement terms.
How will we work together?
As every case is unique, our approach is to agree with you at the outset your personal objectives and then to focus on delivering those objectives effectively and efficiently. We will always be accessible with the aim of reducing anxiety and frustration at a time that we acknowledge can be unsettling for some. We will work calmly and within agreed timescales. We will also agree with you, your legal budget and ensure that you pay a fair price that is good value for money.
Why should I work with Myerson?
We know our approach to exit arrangements works because our Senior Executive clients return to throughout their career journey. They also recommend their friends and colleagues to us. Additionally, we are highly recommended in legal directories and recognised by other specialist employment lawyers as being safe hands to which to refer their clients and contacts.
Exits and settlement agreements are an occupational hazard for Senior Executives. Our approach to these matters is founded in our core values which include not only providing high-quality advice, effectively and efficiently but also that we are professional, friendly and approachable.
How do I take the next step?
Our firm is based in Altrincham, Cheshire but we advise Senior Executives on a nationwide basis. If you need independent advice on a settlement agreement or you are anticipating an exit situation, please call us as we would be delighted to explore with you how we can help you achieve the very best personal and financial outcomes
