Whether you are a business seeking advice concerning a contract for one of your employees, or an executive or professional that has been presented with an employment or benefits contract to sign, our employment lawyers will provide you with the advice and guidance needed to ensure that your rights are protected.
Our lawyers are highly skilled at negotiating the terms of employment and executive agreements, including non-compete and non-solicit provisions. We are aggressive about protecting our clients from entering into agreements that are unfair or that could later prevent them from working in their chosen profession. We counsel clients not to sign any agreements without speaking to an attorney first because these provisions can be overbroad and unreasonable. We negotiate executive agreements, change in control agreements, and all other types of employment agreements.
An employment agreement or executive agreement is a legal document generally entered into before the start of the employment relationship between an executive and an employer that sets forth the material terms of the relationship. It can include the duration of employment, the compensation, benefits, and equity arrangements, and the duties and responsibilities of the executive and employer. It can also include obligations of the executive such as non competition, non-solicitation, confidentiality, and preserving trade secrets. Employment agreements may also establish the venue and choice of law when a dispute arises as well as a mechanism for dispute resolution.
Although our office is located in Charlottesville, Virginia, we have represented clients not only in Charlottesville, but across Virginia and in many other states.
