It’s important as a senior executive or professional that you’re happy with your employment contract before you sign it. You need to be careful that your contract reflects your understanding of the negotiations, and that it doesn’t have far reaching consequences for the future.
Our employment solicitors have considerable experience helping people negotiate their employment terms. We have expertise across sectors including banking and finance, healthcare and professional services.
What Can We Help With?
If you’re a senior executive, we can help you ensure that your contract meets your understanding. Depending on your role, there may be terms in other documents too – such as in a shareholder’s agreement.
Our lawyers can review, advise and help negotiate terms in areas such as:
- Post-termination restrictions
Where a company tries to restrict you from working for competitors in the future, or poaching colleagues or clients.
- Pay and reward
Senior employees can have complex bonus and reward packages.
- Notice periods
Longer notice periods are often required for more senior employees.
- Regulatory obligations
You might have obligations that you need to be aware of (for example the Financial Conduct Authority’s Senior Managers and Certification Regime).
Who Can We Help?
We can help a range of executives and professionals who are starting a new role. Specifically we can help:
- Senior executives
- Board members
- Doctors and other people working in the healthcare industry
- Teachers and headteachers.
