Professional and Executive Employment Law
Professionals and executives often encounter unique legal challenges in the ever-evolving corporate landscape. Our team helps these distinguished individuals in various industries, including healthcare and higher education.
Delving into the diverse matters we handle, our firm is proficient in dealing with the following:
- Employment agreements: We recognize the intricacies of employment agreements for professionals and executives. These agreements play a pivotal role in defining the terms of their employment, outlining rights, responsibilities, and expectations to ensure a mutually beneficial relationship between the parties. Our attorneys draft, review, and negotiate contracts.
- Non-compete agreements: Navigating non-compete agreements and contract negotiations is crucial to our practice. These legal arrangements can significantly impact an executive's career trajectory, making it essential to strike a balance that safeguards their interests while upholding the organization's objectives.
- Severance agreements: The stakes for executives facing severance and termination are exceptionally high. Our firm assists executives in seeking fair terms, protecting their rights and facilitating appropriate treatment and compensation should they transition into new opportunities.
- Compensation and benefits: We understand the intricacies of executive compensation packages, including bonuses, stock options, RSUs, and other incentives. We aim to safeguard the interests of professionals and executives, pursuing remuneration commensurate with their contributions.
Employee Rights and Protections
We firmly believe that every employee deserves to be aware of their fundamental rights in the workplace. Understanding these rights is the first step in facilitating a fair and respectful work environment for everyone. The next step is taking action should an employer engage in unfair or unlawful practices.
Below are some of the matters we can help employees with:
- Workplace discrimination and harassment claims: Workplace discrimination and harassment claims are among the most distressing challenges an employee can face. Our firm advocates for those who have experienced such injustices, working tirelessly to hold accountable those who perpetrate discriminatory and harassing behaviors.
- Retaliation protection: Retaliation protection for those complaining of discrimination, harassment, or whistleblowers is an essential safeguard for employees who bravely come forward to expose misconduct or illegal practices in their workplace. We fiercely protect them, including whistleblowers, seeking to make their actions lead to positive change rather than personal repercussions.
- Wage and hour disputes: Wage and hour disputes can create significant tension between employers and employees. Our experienced team is well-versed in handling such matters, advocating for fair compensation and adherence to labor laws to protect workers' rights.
- Family and medical leave issues: Family and medical leave issues are of utmost importance, as they directly impact an employee's well-being and work-life balance. We stand by employees, guiding them through the complexities of family and medical leave, ensuring they can take the necessary time without fear of negative consequences.
- Wrongful termination: Wrongful termination claims can be emotionally and financially devastating for employees. Our firm protects the rights of those who have been illegally removed from their position, pursuing justice and fair compensation on their behalf.
In the dynamic landscape of employment law, it's not just employees who require guidance and support—employers also have unique needs and challenges. We recognize the significance of addressing these concerns while ensuring compliance with legal requirements. And as many of our professional and executive clients become business owners themselves, we are able to support employers.

Our experienced team stays up-to-date with the latest legal developments, ensuring that employers remain in line with applicable state and federal laws and regulations, fostering a workplace environment built on trust and adherence to the law.
