LGC is usually on the defense side in civil matters. LGC does, however, regularly provide advice to highly compensated executives in a variety of circumstances, including contract termination. Recently, a highly compensated executive in a termination situation brought LGC Partner Teresa Beck a proposed severance agreement to review. After reviewing the agreement and learning about the circumstances surrounding the proposed severance agreement, Ms. Beck determined the executive had claims for failure to accommodate a disability and associated claims. Ms. Beck, assisted by Associate Rich Reese, were able to secure a $1,000,000 settlement for the client, without litigation.
Representing highly compensated executives is a niche practice area of LGC. Highly compensated executives with questions about employment contracts, non-disclosure agreements, non-compete agreement, severance agreements, and related issues are encouraged to contact Ms. Beck for advice. As always, our efforts are geared toward efficient and effective legal assistance, with rates that are usually half of what big firms charge. And LGC provides the same level of high service and high-level results as big firms, without the big-firm cost. Contact Teresa Beck with questions.
