Employment Contract & Severance Negotiations

Spivak Lipton’s attorneys represent individual employees, including Executives, across a wide range of industries such as finance, entertainment, sales, law, health care, etc.  We negotiate employment agreements and severance agreements, provide advice regarding employment disputes, and file claims with administrative agencies (such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), litigate court actions, and appear at alternate dispute resolution hearings (such as arbitrations or mediations).  

The Firm’s attorneys provide highly individualized services in these matters and work closely with our clients to identify the individual employee’s needs and interests when considering an employment agreement or separation package.  When appropriate, we also carefully assess the merits of any potential legal claims and counsel the client regarding the legal process and likely outcome of taking formal legal action against the employer.  The Firm’s attorneys also have significant experience in handling employee benefit issues. We recognize that these matters are often time-sensitive and we are committed to working within the applicable timeframe to ensure that the matter is handled expeditiously and with the required amount of urgency.
