Upon being terminated by an employer, many employees are presented with a separation agreement that provides for post-employment severance payments, information on equity rights in the company, post-employment restrictions and a release of claims against the employer.  No employee should sign a separation agreement without first consulting experienced legal counsel. Our attorneys have significant experience in reviewing and negotiating separation agreements on behalf of employees of all levels spanning a vast number of industries. We evaluate the manner in which the employee was terminated, the employee’s experience working for the employer, whether the employee has a claim against the employer and the terms of the separation agreement to determine if the offer is fair, legal and according to industry standards.  Our experience negotiating high stakes matters along with our ability to litigate disputes enable us to maximize an employee’s benefits upon separation from their employer.
