Often employees have no written employment agreement that define the terms of severance in the event of a termination. At Stevens & Company, we have negotiated employment separation agreements for both employers and employees. Our approach to negotiating separation agreements focuses on the practical aspects of employment relationships, as well as examining types of practical leverage, if any, available for the negotiations. Sometimes our role is simply to stay in the background and guide our clients; other situations may call for us to aggressively advocate a legal claim. Either way, we see our primary goal as protecting the reputation of our client and obtaining the most favorable economic package that is possible under the circumstances.
