Employment contracts are extremely important documents on both sides of the equation — employer and employee — in large part because they create obligations that can lead to complex, costly litigation and business disruption if something in the relationship changes.
Protecting the Interests and Futures of Employers and Professionals
It is critical for employers to structure such agreements carefully, and also for professionals and executives to seek qualified legal counsel before signing or when considering an action that might violate their terms. At Cox Padmore Skolnik & Shakarchy LLP (CPS&S), our Manhattan employment contract attorneys are experienced in drafting, analyzing, enforcing and contesting contracts such as:
- Non-compete agreements, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, and other contracts within the broad category of restrictive covenants
- Employee equity agreements, stock option incentive agreements, wage-and-bonus structure agreements and other components in compensation packages
Our lawyers' knowledge and capabilities extend to representation of many licensed professionals such as physicians, accountants and other attorneys. CPS&S is an outstanding resource for doctors considering bringing others into their private practices, for example, and thus in need of carefully structured agreements that provide both performance incentives and enforceable business protection.
Skilled in Negotiations, Mediation and State or Federal Court Litigation
Virtually any aspect of an employment agreement is subject to challenge, from whether financial obligations have been met to whether firing is legally permissible under the terms of the contract. Complex issues involving the contract's geographic scope, interpretation of confidentiality clauses and what constitutes unlawful solicitation of customers frequently arise.
Although we are proven high-stakes trial lawyers, our skills in direct settlement negotiations, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution are tremendous assets for our employment law clients. Exercising resourcefulness and creativity as well as legal knowledge, we are often able to help employers and employees come to terms that allow both to move on successfully.
