Negotiating your contract
Leaders and senior executives
Having acquired a senior position in your organization, you will be only too aware that it carries not only rewards and recognition but also numerous internal and external responsibilities.
As all forms of business become more heavily regulated, many enforcement bodies are looking at ways to pin responsibility for incidents directly on senior individuals within organizations. It is therefore more likely that you could find yourself in the spotlight regarding your own actions, as well as the actions of your organization, both at home and abroad.
Home and work concerns
We have a huge amount of experience of advising senior executives at FTSE 250 and S&P 100 businesses. We are there to advise you on all aspects of your business and personal life. This can include drafting and advising on employment contracts and advising directors and senior managers on corporate governance, regulatory and severance issues. We also advise executives on their rights and responsibilities as owners of partnerships, corporations and limited liability companies. We can help to financially protect your position if things don’t work out or you’re looking at a new appointment at home or abroad.
Outside work we can advise on writing that will you’ve been putting off, so as to ensure that your loved ones are taken care of, and don’t receive an unpleasant and avoidable tax bill. We can also advise on prenuptial agreements, divorce or the increasing issues surrounding dementia in older people. For example, helping you with elderly parents when they can’t make decisions on their own behalf.
Defending your good name
When problems arise we are on hand to defend your hard-earned reputation and, where necessary, use the law to redress unfair treatment from employers and/or regulators. We are also skilled at preparing senior individuals for the rigorous process of giving testimony at parliamentary or senate hearings, which can be disastrous for your good name if not handled properly.
With specialist advisors in the US, Asia and Europe, the bottom line is that we are in your corner in the good and the bad times.
