Employment Matters Where a Lawyer Can Help a High-Ranking Executive

The relationship between employers and employees has many facets. This relationship may deteriorate over time — and a high-ranking executive may have the need for legal intervention to enforce the terms and conditions of employment, or to provide protection in the pursuit of a new position.

Some of the areas where a high-ranking executive may benefit from the representation and advice of a skilled employment attorney include the following:

  1. Executive compensation matters such as:
    • Bonuses
    • Stock options and stock
    • Incentive compensation
    • Commissions

    Legal action in court or via mediation or arbitration can ensure that the rights of the executive are protected and can ensure that contractual obligations of an employer are met.

  2. Restrictive covenants issues. Non-compete agreements and other agreements that prohibit a high-ranking executive from performing work in the same territory, area or industry as the employer must be carefully crafted. Skilled counsel can fight for the most favorable terms prior to signing. If an employee leaves a company, an attorney can bring an action on behalf of the executive to protect the rights of the employee and ensure the most favorable reading of the agreement.
  3. Severance agreements. The details of a severance agreement can significantly affect the compensation and other entitlements of a high-ranking executive. Legal counsel can fight to obtain the maximum compensation and benefits the executive deserves.
  4. Employment contracts. A skilled attorney can assist an executive in negotiating the terms of an employment contract and can represent an executive who is let go or who finds that the employer has breached the terms of the employment agreement in any way.

Speak to a skilled employment attorney about your high-ranking executive matter.
