We regularly represent employers and business executives on executive compensation matters, employment counseling, and employment-related litigation, including:

  • trade secrets
  • restrictive covenants (non-competition, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements) harassment
  • retaliation
  • violations of federal and state wage/hour laws
  • ERISA and other federal statutes
  • breach of contract
  • interference with contract or prospective economic advantage
  • invasion of privacy
  • defamation
  • intentional infliction of emotional distress

On executive compensation matters, our representation includes negotiating and drafting employment or separation agreements, negotiating resolution of disputes, and if necessary litigating those disputes.

In our experience, many of the disputes are resolved quickly and efficiently with a negotiated severance or buy-out, and we handle many of these matters with a fixed budget.  In the event that the matter extends into mediation or litigation, we oftentimes can handle the matter on a modified contingency basis. 

On employment counseling and employment-related litigation, our representation includes:

  • drafting and implementing employment policies
  • negotiating and litigating hiring and termination issues
  • litigating restrictive covenant and other employment-related matters
