If you are a senior employee leaving a business or are a director of your employer, your exit from the business will often be complex and it is likely that you will need legal support at some stage of the process.
Our solicitors can advise you on any exit packages or Settlement Agreements which are arising from your departure, and how the terms of your employment may impact you going forward. For example, if you have post-termination restrictions in your current role, we can advise you on the enforceability and risks associated with the restrictions as you move to the next stage of your career.
We can also advise and negotiate on your behalf on your exit package, whether this relates to your salary, bonus structures, or any other benefits. If your existing employer is requiring you to sign a Settlement Agreement on departure, it is critical you have independent advice from a solicitor experienced in senior and management departures, as you will need to ensure all your rights and remuneration (for example, any share scheme you may participate in) are fully protected.
