We routinely counsel executives, professionals and other employees, and negotiate on their behalf, with respect to noncompetition, nondisclosure and severance agreements and disputes concerning additional compensation owed.
Negotiating Severance Agreements And Other Contracts
We often negotiate on behalf of a departing employee the terms of their severance agreement, often obtaining much higher severance pay. I also advise former employees concerning the impact of restrictive agreements such as nondisclosure and noncompetition agreements.
Defending Breach Of Noncompetition/Nondisclosure Agreement Claims
We have experience defending an individual and/or the new employer against claims by the former employer that a noncompetition or nondisclosure agreement is breached.
Failure To Pay Sales Commissions
When an employer has failed to pay a departing employee all wages due, including all commissions and other compensation due, the departing employee often has a valuable claim, particularly if the issue falls under the Massachusetts Wage Act or Fair Labor Standards Act.
We have represented numerous individuals in wage claims, oftentimes resulting in a pre-suit settlement or settlement soon after the lawsuit is filed. While we typically are engaged on these matters on an hourly rate, we sometimes are open to being paid a reduced hourly rate in exchange for a percentage of any increase in severance pay.
We represent clients throughout the Boston metropolitan area from our office in Hingham. Call 781-385-7230 or use our convenient online form to schedule an appointment.
