Prelitigation Negotiation, Severance, Separation And Other Employment Agreements
Corporate decisions to downsize or reorganize have hit employees hard. Many employees who receive news of their termination are in shock and believe that the language in the separation agreement they received is standard and that all legal requirements must have been considered. However, each individual’s circumstances are different, making the reviewing attorney’s job crucial.
Bertelson Law Office, P.A. has a successful history of reviewing, evaluating and strategically negotiating severance agreements, “buy-out packages,” executive agreements and noncompete agreements. We can help you assess whether the package you were offered makes sense considering the specifics of your employment. If the package you were offered does not seem reasonable or adequate, we may be able to help you to negotiate better terms. We accomplish this through a deep understanding of the law, knowledge of the subtleties of the negotiation process and your goals.
