Employment Arrangements


After gaining an understanding of your needs, we draft employment and consulting/independent contractor agreements and give advice as to which is appropriate, in light of Internal Revenue Service and Department of Labor considerations.  Employment agreements for high-income individuals or those receiving deferred compensation are also reviewed for compliance with IRS Section 409A.

Where appropriate, we utilize non-disclosure, non-compete, non-solicitation and confidentiality provisions tailored to your needs.  Employee handbooks and manuals are frequently prepared for company-wide implementation.

When a termination event occurs, we are experienced in drafting and negotiating separation or settlement agreements on behalf of both employees and employers.
