Severance and Separation Agreements

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
  • Non-Disparagement
