Our lawyers are renowned for their ability to negotiate on behalf of senior executives and employers.
Whether you are agreeing a custom incentive plan, trying to improve an existing contract or discussing an exit package, we will find the right strategy.
The firm frequently represents directors of listed and privately held companies who are changing their role. We have a particular niche in helping private equity executives to get the firepower they need when negotiating with management teams.
We aim always to leave you better off after paying our fees, and have the reputation to match our excellent results. For example we negotiated the largest whistleblowing settlement in UK history on behalf of a hedge fund manager who alleged malpractice by his former employer. Having the nerve to deal with really big money sets us apart.
Our breadth of experience often gives us a tactical edge, as when a management consultant contacted our Hong Kong office because his contract was being terminated. ‘Our client was a member of a limited liability partnership in the UK, and also had statutory rights under his employment agreement in Hong Kong,’ explains triple-qualified associate Helen Colquhoun. ‘The business hadn’t thought through his rights in the UK, and their LLP agreement made it very difficult for them to exit him because he wasn’t accused of any misconduct. We maximized his commercial leverage to get him two years’ money, which was more than he was legally entitled to.’
Our cases are often high profile, attracting interest from print and broadcast media, and our experienced reputation management team can help you to handle that coverage.
