Severance Package Review & Consultation

If you are considering a severance package, you should get a severance Review & Consultation.   We will review your severance package, go over it with you and point out potential problems and how to fix them.

Signing a severance package without legal advice is risky.  Here are a few things that can happen:

  • You could leave money on the table
  • You could lock yourself out of your industry for a year or more
  • You could be required to return your severance payments once you get a new job
  • You could waive your rights without understanding the consequences
  • You could expose yourself to needless restrictions and penalties

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 of $500 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.
