EXECUTIVE & SALES PROFESSIONAL ADVOCACY

We routinely counsel executives, professionals, and other employees, and negotiate on their behalf, concerning noncompetition, nondisclosure, and severance agreements and disputes concerning additional compensation owed.

Areas of Expertise


Contract Negotiations

Negotiating Severance Agreements And Other Contracts

We negotiate on behalf of a departing employee the terms of their severance agreement, often obtaining a much higher severance pay. I also advise former employees concerning the impact of restrictive agreements such as nondisclosure and non-competition 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. 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 at 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.
