Are you a senior executive? Do you need advice and sign off on a settlement agreement? Or would you like help in securing better terms?
Often exit terms will be contained in a settlement agreement (previously known as compromise agreements). The first draft of which is prepared by the employer and given to the senior executive usually after a protected/without prejudice conversation discussion involving HR.
David uses his litigation background and his tactical expertise to negotiate high-value settlement terms. His expertise in helping senior executives has been recognised over the years by both the main independent guides to the UK legal profession.
Many of David’s senior level clients have valuable elements in their employment packages like equity awards, shares, long term incentive plans (LTIPs), options and bonuses. These elements usually form key elements for negotiation and protection in settlement agreement terms.
Superb, realistic, jargon-free, employment law advice. I’d have no hesitation to recommend David Greenhalgh to employees or employers, and indeed have done with other colleagues benefiting from his specialist employment law experience. He is commercially-focused and gives practical advice to solve employment issues. He’s professional, responsive and works quickly.
If the terms on offer do not reflect the value of your potential claims or what you know has been paid to others at your level, David can negotiate to secure enhanced terms.
Once you understand the value of any potential claims you may have David can help you in weighing this against the value of what is on offer in the draft settlement agreement given to you by your employer.
