Separation Agreements

Seeking to understand the complex or confusing language of a separation agreement you were offered? Schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys to walk through the whole agreement.

Severance Negotiations

Were you offered severance but wish to negotiate for more? Perhaps you were terminated without any severance at all and believe compensation is warranted. Hiring an attorney to negotiate on your behalf to maximize your offer might be the right next step.

Employment Offers

Non-disclosure, non-competition, and non-solicitation: these are some of a few obligations which might be wrapped up in your acceptance of an employment offer. If you’d like to understand or negotiate your offer of employment, reach out to schedule a consultation with an attorney.

Cease and Desist Letters

Being sent a cease and desist letter can be shocking and upsetting. How you respond to the letter can be the difference between de-escalation and litigation. If you received a cease and desist letter, call us to discuss your options for replying.
