Skilled guidance for employment contracts, non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, and exit packages
Sound contracts are the cornerstone of any business transaction. At The Fromholz Firm, we have decades of experience drafting, analyzing, and negotiating employment contracts, non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, and separation agreements. Whether you need help creating a new contract, updating an existing contract, or resolving a contract dispute, our legal team has the experience and knowledge to protect your best interests.
Negotiating employment agreements
Executives often are presented with employment contracts when they accept a new position. It is vitally important that you negotiate the best possible agreement, which protects your interests during and after your employment, at the outset. We can help you ensure that your agreement’s compensation provisions are clear and reflect the deal you reached, that the termination provisions are fair, that the definition of “cause” is reasonable, and that you are protected by a “good reason” clause.
We also have extensive experience working with and negotiating restrictive covenants, including non-solicitation and non-compete agreements. We are particularly well-versed in the application of these provisions across state lines, which can present thorny questions for executives moving from one position to another.
Types of employment agreements we negotiate
Our attorneys have helped clients negotiate contracts in a wide range of industries including technology, education, gaming, energy, health care, entertainment, hospitality, professional services, manufacturing, logistics, and more.
We typically assist clients with the following types of employment agreements:
- Duration of employment
- Job duties
- Salary and benefits
- Grounds for termination
- Definition of cause and good reason
- Arbitration provisions
- Restrictive covenants such as non-compete agreements and non-solicitation provisions
Employment contracts help companies and employees thrive. Our attorneys review your employment contract to ensure your rights and interests are always protected.
Whether you are leaving your position voluntarily or involuntarily, through resignation, termination, or layoff, you undoubtedly want to leave with an exit package that provides for you until you find your next position. We have negotiated hundreds of exit packages for executives across a wide range of industries and have helped ensure that their transition is as smooth as possible.
