Seasoned Counsel for Executive Severance Negotiation
Whether you’re leaving a job by choice or as a result of less pleasant circumstances, the terms of your executive severance package can have a significant bearing on your financial and occupational future. Working out the terms of your severance agreement with an employment attorney from Halunen Law is a wise move to ensure your best interests are served.
Your Severance Amount Is Negotiable.
Companies and their executives part ways all the time. Sometimes, the executive leaves to pursue a more attractive and lucrative opportunity. Other times, however, deteriorating relationships, disputes or broader economic and strategic factors lead to an involuntary or even acrimonious separation. Regardless of the why surrounding an executive’s departure, how the relationship ends – the terms of a severance package – will play an oversized role in determining the executive’s financial and career future.
At Halunen Law, we work with C-suite executives, managers and other high-level employees across the country to negotiate severance packages that maximize the economic benefits they receive upon separation. We leverage powerful negotiating skills and unmatched employment law experience to ensure that severance agreements provide the security, clarity and peace of mind our clients deserve after years – or decades – of hard work and sacrifice
Negotiating a New Beginning at the End of Your Tenure.
If your tenure at your current employer is coming to an unexpected or undesired end, it can be a time of anxiety and uncertainty, as well as one tinged with bitterness or resentment. It can also be a moment of opportunity – if you have the allies and advocates who know how to seize it.
Halunen Law’s employment lawyers negotiate robust and generous severance packages all the time, just like your employer does. Working closely with you, we can develop an approach that puts you in the strongest possible position to obtain more compensation, benefits and concessions, as well as minimize any limitations on your post-departure business activities and opportunities.
Unfortunately, too many otherwise business-savvy executives simply take whatever their employer gives them in a severance package – if the company offers anything. But signing a severance or separation agreement without negotiating or consulting an experienced labor and employment attorney can be a costly error.
