Severance agreements can be an important point of negotiation when an employee ends an employment relationship. It’s also important to review the agreement carefully to make sure your interests are protected after signing. I can review your severance agreement to help you avoid making mistakes during this process.
For Employees: Negotiating or Reviewing Severance Agreements
Obtaining a severance agreement or package that is fair and maximizes the benefit to you is vital for your economic security when leaving a position.
For a reasonable flat fee (starting at $250 for up to 20 pages), I can review a severance agreement offered by your employer to identify any provisions that are concerning or unfavorable to you. I can offer advice on any provisions that you might want to ask your employer to change or add into the agreement. We can also discuss the amount your employer has offered and whether it would be a good idea to try to negotiate a higher amount. If needed, I can also personally represent you in negotiating a severance agreement or package.
Most severance agreements that I review raise at least some concerns. It’s usually a good idea to have an attorney look at it to protect yourself and see if there’s anything you can do to improve the agreement.
We can typically schedule an appointment to review a severance agreement within 1-3 business days. To get started, submit your information using the form below, and then send us a copy of your severance agreement at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also fax the agreement to (702) 944-6630.
We look forward to assisting you by reviewing your severance agreement.
