Employment agreements, including executive employment agreements, are highly technical documents that are fundamentally important to the employment relationship. These agreements lay the foundation that underlies the relationship between employer and employee and must be carefully negotiated before they are finalized.
At Sultan Lawyers, our team of highly knowledgeable employment lawyers regularly assist employees at the senior management and executive levels with employment contracts and compensation matters. We have the experience necessary to review, draft, and negotiate high-level employment contracts as well as related compensation matters. We know what to look for when examining contracts, are highly strategic when it comes to addressing any issues, and know how to most effectively ensure our rights are upheld and protected. We are also well prepared to represent you in disputes which may arise in relation to employment contracts, whether in relation to contract interpretation or implementation.
In addition to the common clauses that employers will generally include in every employment agreement, such as termination clauses, non-competition clauses, and other restrictive covenants, executive employment agreements often include terms that are specific to executive and other high-level employment. This may include:
At Sultan Lawyers, we draw on our many years of experience advising employers on executive employment agreements and in drafting such agreements to provide exceptional guidance to executives on how best to protect their interests. We rely on our experience sitting on both sides of the negotiating table to ensure our executive clients walk away with the best terms.
Before you finalize any written executive employment agreement with your employer, meet with the knowledgeable employment lawyers at Sultan Lawyers. We can help you negotiate the most beneficial terms, highlight areas of potential risk, and ensure that you are protected. Contact us online or at 416-214-5111 for a consultation.
