Detroit Executive Employment Contract Lawyers

An executive employment agreement offers a competitive advantage in today’s labor market – as long as it’s appropriately structured and both sides live up to their promises.

As an executive seeking employment with a new company, with your current employer, or due to a promotion or other change in circumstances, it’s important that you understand all the legal implications of any employment agreement that’s put on the table. Going it alone is ill advised – you need a capable and competent employment lawyer to assist you. That’s why you should call a lawyer at Sommers Schwartz.

Why Have an Executive Employment Contract?

Executives provide companies with needed leadership, vision, and management, and hiring talented people is critically important for the company’s future, as important as the decision is on an executive’s career. The employment contract between the company and the executive needs to address a range of specific points and contingencies, both in terms of what should be included in the contract and what should be avoided. Conditions that may need to be addressed include compensation (salary, bonuses, stock options, benefits, etc.), job duties and reporting relationships, circumstances under which the contract can be terminated, restrictions on competition and protection of confidential business information, and entitlement to severance benefits.

We’re well-versed in the complex issues of executive contracts, experience that comes from years of navigating the finer points of employment law and helping businesses and their people move forward.

I want to extend to both you and Tad a final thank you for your diligence in defending my case over the past several months. You put a great deal of time and energy into my defense, included me in the decision-making process, communicated with me regularly, and I am pleased with the outcome.

My matter was handled and prosecuted above my expectations.

My matter was handled and prosecuted above my expectations and resulted in a positive outcome – other attorneys I contacted weren’t even interested in representing me. I would strongly recommend Sommers Schwartz and Mr. Watkins.

You went above and beyond expectations.

Our business is very complex with the different manufacturers we deal with and the rebate programs associated with them, and we feel the time, effort and your timeliness in understanding the different aspects of our case helped us with a reasonable resolution.

They are an awesome team and I would recommend them and their firm to anyone.

I contacted Sommers Schwartz to join a class action suit. Kevin Stoops and his assistant Veronica Stewart took my case and walked me through all the documents that I had to sign, explained everything to me, and won my case!

Overall a wonderful job and I will definitely recommend you!
