The issues faced by senior executives in the workplace vary considerably from those of the wider workforce. From protecting your position in boardroom politics, to any other aspect of a corporate career, Giambrone can work with you to safeguard your interests.
Should a partnership dispute arise, there is an imperative to reach a resolution that protects the business and limits any potential harm. It is not uncommon for the strength of feeling on both sides to prohibit rational negotiations.
In partnership politics there are any number of reasons for disputes to arise. For example; formal disagreements over how the rights and obligations are shared, and the variations between different partners’ retirement provisions. Often the most challenging type of disputes are those with partnerships that involve family members.
A partner who finds themselves in similar situations needs to protect their position from the outset, particularly if the dispute is threatening the continued existence of a business. Understanding the legal rights and options available is essential to closing down a dispute as quickly as possible, which in turn offers the best chance of survival for the partnership. Our lawyers will set out your position and suggest viable options to limit personal risk, all in the hope of enabling the partnership to continue if at all possible.
The very best time for a senior executive to negotiate a good severance package is before they accept the position. The world of highly pressured executive positions is volatile, and the possibility of a role being terminated needs to be contemplated before the fact. The reasons can vary, but they often all involve a hasty exit. Office-based political campaigns can be hard to avoid.
Directly after a corporate conflict is not the most advantageous time to negotiate a desirable compensation package. We propose the knowledge an existing generous severance deal is awaiting you might influence the behaviour of all parties concerned in the present.
It’s imperative to contemplate how to protect your current position, and also enable your future to always include the possibility of earning a (more than) satisfactory living.
Our corporate lawyers will advise you, and furthermore devise a robust strategy aimed at obtaining the best results for all possible situations. We can either stand by your side and assist you through the negotiations, or negotiate on your behalf. And with your input, shape all aspects from the amount of the financial settlement, to the terms of any announcements in the press and letters of recommendation etc.
