Executive Severance Agreements in San Diego

The Watkins Firm has decades of experienced helping to negotiate executive severance agreements in San Diego and Southern California.  Executive severance agreements are enforceable under California law, however the agreement must incorporate specific terms while eschewing others.  If you are in the midst of an executive severance you need the experienced proven advice of the business, employment and contract attorneys at the Watkins Firm.

Executive severance agreements in San Diego are full of sensitive issues, nuances and potential legal challenges.  The company wants to ensure the executive relationship is terminated without exposing trade secret or competitive information to the open market and potential competitors.  In some contentious situations the severance package may include the release from potential litigation or liability for either party.

Executive compensation packages often promise severance if the relationship is involuntarily ended.  Some executives who are terminated “for cause” believe this is simply a strategy to avoid paying the agreed upon severance.  The strategy of each party must be strategically considered and usually the stakes are high in these circumstances.

Watkins Firm attorneys are known for resolving executive severance matters in a timely and cost-efficient manner.  We understand the nature of business and these relationships.  We balance the realities of public image, competitive advantage and trade secrets, the desire to move in a different direction and the actions of all parties while helping them to find common ground.  Our seasoned negotiators protect the goals and objectives of our clients while applying leverage to strengthen our position.  When parties are inflexible or unreasonable, mediation and arbitration can be effective alternatives to a public litigation.

Executive severance agreements in San Diego must be negotiated with skill, and agreements must be constructed to be legally enforceable here in California.  We invite you to contact us or call 858-535-1511 for a free consultation if you are require assistance with executive severance agreements in San Diego or southern California.
