Executive management must often shoulder enormous responsibility from both a civil and a criminal point of view, and are generally not protected enough against the risk of losing their functions or the challenging of their responsibilities. Gide covers all legal aspects of the executive status and in particular the concurrent holding of a corporate office and an employment contract, compensation and benefits policies, delegating authority and removal from office.
We draft executives’ employment contracts and pay particular attention to the specific provisions often applying to such employees.
The Employment Law practice group helps clients determine corporate executive compensation and benefits policies.
We assist our clients in selecting potential proxies and responsibilities to be delegated, as well as in drafting and implementing delegations of authority.
Our lawyers help clients terminate corporate offices and negotiate settlement agreements, where necessary.
