Settlements and Appointments

Executives and partners are key to any business, and often have complex legal requirements. We guide our clients through the full range to advice relating to partners and senior executives, from appointment to exit, acting for both businesses and senior individuals. Whether the advice arises in the context of a corporate transaction, a shareholder or partnership dispute, or is simply strategic hiring and firing, we can help.

Our work routinely sees us carry out the following:

  • Drafting and negotiating directors’ service agreements for executives and management teams.

  • Advising on the exit options for directors and partners, including advice on tactics, restrictive covenants, equity-related issues, good leaver/bad leaver provisions, risk mitigation and negotiation strategies.

  • Planning and scripting exit discussions and negotiations, and advising on and drafting settlement agreements.

  • Drafting and negotiating bespoke bonus and commission schemes.

  • Advising on bonus awards and related litigation.

In summary, we provide businesses and senior individuals with highly commercial and responsive advice in order to achieve highly favourable outcomes.
