Executive Employee Law
Executive Employee Contracts and Compensation
Dolley Law, LLC has substantial experience reviewing, drafting, negotiating, and litigating disputes regarding employment contracts for executive-level employees. These contracts are often detailed in terms and conditions and complex in structure, particularly with respect to matters of compensation. Our Firm understands that these types of contracts must fairly balance both the individual’s and the company’s interests—short-term and long-term—to ensure a successful relationship is developed and sustained.
Retaining experienced and knowledgeable legal counsel to review, draft, and/or negotiate the specific terms and conditions of such contracts before signing them is critically important to avoid disputes and to ensure a mutually successful relationship.
Dolley Law, LLC will closely examine any proposed contact to ensure that the contract is in our client's best interests and to avoid potential pitfalls or loopholes that could cause future problems or liabilities. Failure to have legal counsel examine an executive contract prior to signing could result in not only serious liability and long-term problems, but also damaged business relationships and expensive litigation. We will review your contract to ensure, among many other things, you understand compensation terms, limitations on personal liability, and other enforceable rights and protections in the event of any dispute related to the contract or employment arrangement.
Executive Employee Litigation
Sometimes, an employee or third party will sue not only a company but also its executive(s) to try to hold them personally liable for an incident or event in the workplace. If such litigation does occur, the interests of the executive(s) and the company are not always completely the same. Executives commonly require independent legal counsel to ensure that their personal interests in such litigation are protected. Other times, disputes arise between a company and its own executive(s). And the resolution of such disputes often turns on the terms and conditions of the executive’s employment contract. In either scenario, our Firm provides the vigorous representation that executives individually need under such circumstances in order to firmly assert and/or defend their rights.
