Skilled Representation In Separation Agreements
Like any business contract, a separation agreement often contains dense legal language and overwhelming fine print. Legal agreements come ridden with potential landmines. It is important to seek the counsel of a skilled attorney who can carefully analyze the document and provide valuable insight.
Our firm can assist clients with reviewing separation agreements as well as negotiating the terms of such agreements. We have considerable experience dealing with negotiations for employees in Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts involving:
- Separation agreements
- Severance agreements
- Noncompete agreements
Why It Is Important For An Attorney To Review Your Agreement
Agreements can come in attractive packages with ultimately deceivable value. They may advertise a desirable dollar amount, but the fine print can include less than desirable restrictions. Signing a convoluted agreement without an experienced attorney can lead to waiving your rights or loss of valuable benefits.
If your severance or separation agreement already comes with a specified dollar amount, then it is possible to get a better outcome with other benefits. At Formisano & Company, we review the entire agreement to ensure that it is in your best interests. We will negotiate to obtain favorable severance benefits, including salary continuation, medical benefits, letters of recommendation and nondisparagement agreements.
With over 50 years of combined legal experience, you can trust our lawyers to offer knowledgeable employment law guidance. If you have been offered a severance agreement, do not hesitate to schedule a consultation with an attorney at Formisano & Company to review the agreement and provide you sound legal advice.
