Severance Package Review & Consultation

A severance agreement is an important legal document that can impact your life and your career.  Severance packages, and the situations in which they arise, vary greatly.   Some agreements are fair and balanced and do not need substantial modification.  Others need to be re-negotiated.  In some cases, we cannot increase the amount offered, while in others we have negotiated million dollar increases.

The first step is to analyze the situation and the documents.  We handle this in the Review & Consultation.  In many cases, that is all you need.  But in some cases, we go further and negotiate significant modifications of the terms and the amount of severance and benefits provided.

We have been helping executives with severance packages since 1999.   We represent everyone from middle managers to C-level executives at Fortune 500 companies.

We charge a flat fee of $500 for a severance review and consultation.

We provide a Severance Review & Consultation.  It’s fast and efficient.   Send us your severance agreement and we will review it and then go over it with you in person or over the phone.   We often find items that need to be modified and, in some cases, leverage to get you a better deal.   Contact us today to arrange your Review & Consultation.

Two-Part Severance Process

Review and Consultation

The first step in the process is a Review and Consultation.   You send us your severance agreement and we review it.   Then we meet with you, on the phone or in person, to go over it with you.   We explain the agreement, answer your questions, make suggestions and determine if its possible to negotiate better terms.   We charge a flat fee  for the Review & Consultation.  

Severance Negotiation

The second step is Severance Negotiation.   If we determine that better terms can be negotiated, you can hire us to negotiate on your behalf.   We then contact the appropriate representative at your company (usually in-house or outside counsel) and negotiate new terms.

We charge a flat fee to negotiate.   Some cases take a few hours to conclude, others take more time.  In most cases, the increase in value that we obtain greatly exceeds the legal fee that we charge but we cannot guarantee results.
