Executive compensation contracts and severance packages have been much discussed and maligned in recent years as excessive or greedy by media outlets, commentators, pundits and politicians. What is ignored is the fact that executives have just as much right as anyone else to ask for the pay they think their talents and abilities warrant. And when a contract negotiation with a current or prospective employer results, through mutual agreement, in a high level of compensation for that individual — it is no one else’s business to say that it’s not fair, least of all the employer who agreed to it in the first place.
At Leeds Brown Law, PC, our lawyers represent individuals in negotiating executive compensation contracts and severance package agreements, and in disputes alleging breaches of their specific terms. Our practice, while dealing primarily with cases on Long Island or elsewhere in the New York City area, extends to individuals in other parts of the country as well.
In terms of contract negotiation, we are mindful at all times of how your future financial security may be affected by our work. Applying a team approach, we will work efficiently to draft an employment contract that best serves both your current and future financial needs. Should a dispute arise or your employer renege on the agreement later, we will move swiftly to resolve the matter through whatever means — negotiation, mediation, private arbitration or trial — is most appropriate.
