Helpful, knowledgeable legal advice on the issues you face as a Senior Executive or Director

  • Senior Executives and Directors face unique challenges in the workplace and consequently require specialist legal advice for many key issues.
  • You may want guidance concerning your appointment or exit, your contract or service agreement, or the impact of restrictive covenants. You may need support if you are involved in a boardroom dispute.
  • Our specialist employment solicitors have extensive experience of supporting Senior Executives and Directors with pertinent, practical and timely advice across all of these issues and more.

Senior Executives and Directors face different, and often more complex challenges than other company personnel. Extra responsibility brings greater pressures, particularly in terms of ensuring proper and legally compliant management of the company to satisfy shareholders, and making sure employees’ rights and working conditions are respected.

It is only right that your significant contribution to the company should be rewarded with an appropriate package. When joining a company, it’s particularly important to ensure your contract or service agreement covers everything you’ve been promised and does not contain restrictions that could hinder your subsequent career moves.

At some stage you may be involved in a boardroom dispute, which can become a highly charged and complicated situation. Doing what’s best for the business may require the removal of one or more directors; if you are at odds with your colleagues on the board, that director could be you and you will want the best protection possible for your financial wellbeing and reputation.

In all of these issues, the advice of an experienced employment solicitor is invaluable. Our team comprises of experts who use their specialist knowledge to provide senior executives and directors with helpful, pragmatic advice and effective representation whenever it is required. We understand and work to time pressures, so you can trust us to think and act quickly, whilst paying close attention to detail.
