As a Boston executive employment lawyer, I have helped negotiate favorable contracts for executives in all types of positions at companies throughout the United States. The following are some examples of how I helped a CMO for an Illinois-based national retailer negotiate for more favorable terms in the employment contract:Eliminated “give-backs” unless there was termination for cause: We negotiated out a number of give-backs in the contract so that the signing bonus, relocation expenses, loan payments and a restricted stock grant were not repayable on termination, unless there was termination for cause.
Preserved executive’s prerogatives in the event of termination: We negotiated a narrow grounds of non-compete and non-solicitation provisions to assure the executive’s marketability following a termination in the fields of contacts, knowledge, reputation and experience.
Protected the executive’s free-use of his knowledge: We negotiated added exceptions to the confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement.
