We have significant experience in dealing with senior executive departures/disputes. It is often useful to have a conversation with a specialist if a departure is on the horizon if negotiations have not commenced. The benefits of doing so are to clarify the legal framework surrounding the intended departure and to maximise the opportunity for a favourable settlement.
We can assist in directly negotiating with an employer, or by more frequently, advising in the background so as to advise on every communication between the departing employee and the company.
In particular, we focus on:
- Exploring options for enhancing a contractual package
- Dealing with any difficult restrictive covenant and confidentiality issues
- Long term incentive payments
- Director duties
- Company property
