Executive Compensation

& employment

commercial disputes

Appropriately compensating and incentivizing high level employees to advance a company’s goals can be a delicate task. Our attorneys assist corporate clients in developing and implementing employment agreements, profit-sharing and phantom stock plans and other executive compensation structures. We also advise individual executives on restrictive covenants, severance agreements and compensation packages.


Employment matters can be deeply personal and disruptive. Mishandled, they create a poisonous work environment. We strive to resolve issues before they end up in court. By working with our clients early, we can help develop strategies, employee handbooks and office procedures that resolve issues without the need for litigation.

We also advise clients on developing enforceable non-competition, confidentiality and non-solicitation agreements to protect valuable intangibles from unscrupulous employees and competitors.
