Your Voice at the Negotiating Table

KJK’s Employment & Severance Negotiations Group is your voice at the negotiating table. We represent executives, professionals and other employees in the artful negotiation of employment and severance agreements.

We take pride in our attention to detail and our track record of delivering results that cater to each client’s individual needs and goals. Drawing on extensive experience including both national firm and in-house work, our team is uniquely positioned to help you achieve the best possible outcome when it comes to compensation and benefit terms. This includes bonus and incentive compensation, deferred compensation, and equity and stock awards. In addition, we understand the importance of negotiating strong severance terms in advance, so that our clients are protected in the future.

Our attorneys also represent employees when they are terminated from their employment or choose to resign. We work with our clients to identify their goals and then seek to maximize the terms of any severance/separation agreement. When the situation warrants, we pursue legal and contractual claims to ensure our clients receive favorable compensation benefits and reasonable non-economic terms.
