Termination & Settlement Agreements

The termination of employment of a director or senior executive can be a critical event for an employer. We have the skills and experience to guide you through this process.

We can advise on advance planning and analysis, prompt commercial and pragmatic advice and the right balance of sensitivity and strength in negotiations.

We also act for employees in relation to the negotiation and terms of settlement agreements.  As well as advising on an individual basis we are often recommended by other law firms to offer advice to large groups of employees facing collective redundancy situations including on the terms of settlement agreements
