Senior executives

We offer senior executives and directors (including non-executives) expert advice from experienced lawyers.

Whether you are starting a new role or experiencing problems in your current position, the knowledge that you have expert legal advisers who can deal with any aspect of your employment relationship can be invaluable.

If you are considering a new offer, we can help you negotiate the terms of your employment and the incentives and benefits package that goes with it to make sure you are paid commensurate with the market and in a tax effective way.  We also regularly give guidance on the enforceability of restrictive covenants imposed by previous employers and how best to handle any possible sensitivities.

We can also advise those whose role involves corporate responsibilities in relation to their obligations and duties and the protections available.

If you experience difficulties in your employment relationship we can advise on your alternative courses of action taking into account your bargaining position, the impact on bonuses and incentives yet to be received and, of course, contractual and statutory rights.  Together we can devise a strategy to obtain the best possible outcome for you in any given circumstances and we have the skills to negotiate and structure any settlement to maximise the amount actually delivered to you net of any taxes.
