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.

You have really been fun to work with and are so down to earth.

I just wanted to say congratulations – I know you guys have worked very hard on my lawsuit. While there are attorneys who make the client feel like a cardboard box and afraid to say anything, it is easy to talk to you!

I will always recommend Mr. Watkins and Sommers Schwartz.

After meeting Mr. Watkins in person and working with him during the proceedings, I realized that the words in his website bio were true. He is a FIGHTER for his clients. No matter what time of day I called, he immediately returned my call. I am glad I made an EXCELLENT decision in selecting him.

You did a great job.

Thank for all you did in my case, Kevin. You did a great job.

You have no idea how much you and your team have helped me.

My husband and I had taken the advice of someone else over yours – only to later regret it. You got the results we wanted in three days after we wasted 7 weeks with someone else. You have no idea how much you and your team have helped me, and…

I would recommend your law firm in a heartbeat.

Thank you Jason, I would recommend your law firm in a heartbeat. If I ever did need more help with something concerning the law, I will certainly contact you.

Your ability, understanding, and compassion are truly remarkable.

Your ability, understanding, compassion and at time dispassionate way of speaking for those who no longer can speak for themselves are truly remarkable.
