We represent clients in the review and negotiation of severance/separation and general release agreements. While much of our work will focus on efforts to obtain more substantial separation payments/severance, we also advise on the non-economic aspects of the agreement which can often assist and ease our client’s efforts in obtaining subsequent employment.
These severance/separation agreements often involve the following:
- General Release Issues
- Owed Bonuses
- Deferred Compensation
- Vested/Unvested Equity
- Restrictive Covenants (non-competition, non-solicitation)
- Confidentiality Issues
