Severance Agreements & Exit Negotiations


Our firm has a particular expertise in negotiating resignation and severance agreements for executives and managerial employees, especially those in academia and the accounting, banking, health care, and entertainment industries. Crucial issues to consider in the context of employment termination include severance pay, COBRA rights, post-retirement medical benefits, pension and 401(k) benefits, deferred compensation, a positive reference, and other important benefits. We advise employees regarding obligations extending beyond termination, such as those typically reflected in confidentiality, non-competition, non-solicitation, and non-derogation agreements and policies.
