Our employment law specialists have significant experience in acting on behalf of senior executives in a wide range of industries. From small businesses to blue-chip corporates, we have given extensive help and advice in all areas of employment law.
Many employment law issues are particularly relevant to senior executives, including bonus disagreements, restrictive covenants, contract clauses, notice periods, settlement agreement terms, gross misconduct, stocks and share, references and more.
It’s important for senior executives to maintain a positive reputation when departing a business and that any share options or equity are correctly protected.
We can give experienced advice on severance packages and top-level negotiations with senior HR directors and company lawyers.
How We Can Help Senior Executives
Our employment law solicitors have extensive experience in working with senior executives in a multitude of small and large businesses. We know how employers and their advisers act in situations regarding senior execs and have answers for the typical tactics they use. We can therefore anticipate, negotiate and mediate with corporate bodies and organisations and assist in legal proceedings if necessary.
We aim to find the most positive solution for our clients, not one that will cause legal costs and reputations to spiral out of control. Our advice is approached with strategy and tact in mind, so that you can continue to work confidently with the best support behind you.
Boardroom disputes and negotiated exits
We can offer advice for senior executives who may be departing the business, including details relating to shares, future employment and reputation management.
If you employer has offered you a settlement agreement, it’s vital that you are getting a fair and reasonable deal. If you sign a settle agreement, you will be giving up your rights to bring a claim to the Employment Tribunal. The settlement agreement may also cover off resignation from your Directorship, transfer or sale of shares and finalising benefit arrangements.
Disciplinary, grievances and dismissals
We can provide expert advice and guidance if you are facing a disciplinary procedure or potential dismissal. This will include meeting preparation and drafting the necessary letters.
Additional Support for Senior Executives
If your particular situation requires legal proceedings, we have the necessary personnel in the legal industry to assist you. Our team can aid in:
- Negotiating new terms for employment contracts
- Negotiating terms of departure
- Helping clients when they wish to move jobs
Employment Tribunal Claims for Senior Executives
We pride ourselves on offering specialist guidance and advice on bringing claims to the Employment Tribunal regarding the end of your employment.
