Philip Landau and the employment lawyers at Landau Law are well known, having acted for thousands of senior executives across most industry sectors. This includes many individuals from FTSE 100 and 250 companies, including those working in blue-chip corporates, banking/ financial services, technology and sales, telecoms, media, and the legal, accountancy and medical profession.
There are also plenty of executives who work for smaller companies who we have helped extensively.
There are many employment law issues that relate specifically to senior executives namely bonuses, restrictive covenants, onerous clauses in your contract of employment or service agreement, notice periods, settlement agreement terms, stocks and shares, gross misconduct, references (including FCA references), international issues such as UK rights if you are working abroad and whistleblowing. We have vast experience in all these areas.
In addition, you will need to preserve your reputation when you leave, and ensure any equity or share options are properly protected.
We have negotiated thousands of favourable severances packages against most of the investment and retail banks, together with other financial institutions in the City and UK- with very high rates of success. Such top level negotiations with senior HR directors or company lawyers require particular expertise and sensitivity to achieve the best results- which is what we do, day in and day out. At the conclusion of negotiations, you will almost certainly be asked to sign a settlement agreement.
