We advise employees on all aspects of Settlement Agreements: whether you’re a Board director with a complex share options package, a busy manager or a first-time executive, we work with you. We help you understand your legal rights and options, the process and the different outcomes you could expect.
If you’d like an initial, no obligation discussion about the terms of your Settlement Agreement and the sums on offer, why not call us now on 0203 669 2216.
A Settlement Agreement is a legally binding agreement between you and your employer. It allows you to settle any claims against your employer, who in return agrees to pay you financial compensation.
Some Settlement Agreements can be very complex, whilst others are relatively simple. Whatever the content of the Agreement you’re offered, it’s vital that you take advice from a solicitor – it’s not valid unless you do. We know this can sound daunting, time consuming and expensive, but usually we can provide advice without charging you,as the costs are met by your employer.
As lawyers who specialise in Settlement Agreements, we can advise you on relatively routine, pre-agreed settlement or a high value complex Agreement covering shares, options and structured payments. We’ll give you jargon-free, practical advice, reassure you and help you review your options. We also work hard to ensure that you get the best possible package. All negotiations are handled by highly trained and skilled solicitors whose focus is achieving the best outcome for you.
