Workplace Counseling And Negotiation Of Employee Agreements
Negotiating with an employer can be particularly challenging. You want to retain your employment and good standing with your employer, but also receive the compensation and benefits you deserve. For executives and other salaried employees where there is room for negotiating with your employer, you should not handle these negotiations alone.
At the Law Office of Peter G. Goodman, PLLC, we assist clients in the New York area with negotiations with their employers. With decades of legal and employment law experience, we can provide you with sound counsel to help you negotiate your employment agreements and related documents. We also can negotiate directly with your employer if that is your preference. As a smaller law firm, we will take the time to understand your circumstances and goals for the negotiations and, with that knowledge, we will help you achieve the results you need.
Handling All Types Of Employment Contract Negotiations
We help our clients with employment contract negotiations involving:
- Employment contracts: For executive and sales positions, and roles requiring unique education or skills, negotiation on the front end is critical. We have the knowledge and experience to help you negotiate terms including salary, bonus and commission structure, and restrictive covenants such as noncompetition and non-solicitation agreements.
- Consulting agreements: Our attorneys also represent consultants and independent contractors. We can help our clients negotiate the details of short-term or long-term consulting contracts. Issues can include compensation, indemnification, and other related matters.
- Separation agreements: We help many of our clients negotiate their exit from a current position. Severance pay and restrictive covenants are the most common issues that arise in these negotiations, but our lawyers can protect your interests in any issue that might arise.
Our clients trust the experience and knowledge our lawyers bring to their negotiations with employers. We have experience working for employers as well as employees. This experience gives us in-depth knowledge of how employers approach employment contract negotiations, which helps us get the results our clients need.
