As a Boston executive employment attorney, I have helped many executives across the country negotiate strong employment contracts that take into account equity and other essential provisions. This representative case looks at some of the things my contract negotiations led to for the COO of a Texas software company:

Changed options to preserve them to exit: Changes that were negotiated to stock options allowed for extended exercise, which enabled the executive to retain options post-termination for several years. This allowed him lucrative exit on the exercise and sale of shares.

Changed termination to allow his trigger for severance: We negotiated changes to the termination language to narrow grounds (termination by the company for cause), and to allow him to terminate, or quit, for good reason which would trigger his severance package.

Expanded severance period and pay: We negotiated for an expansion of the severance period with an inclusion of bonuses within the severance.
