    Baltimore, Maryland Severance Agreement Attorney

Severance Agreements

Some employment separations are accompanied by a severance agreement. In certain instances, the employer offers a severance agreement to serve its own business and legal objectives. In other instances, it is the employee who is able to generate the severance discussions that lead to a beneficial severance opportunity. In either case, it is very important to engage an experienced Maryland severance agreement lawyer to provide strategic advice and guidance and to assist in negotiating a strong and binding severance agreement.

As an experienced Maryland severance agreement lawyer, I help employees review, negotiate, and secure beneficial severance agreements. My job is to work with you to develop a comprehensive exit strategy and explore every option to ensure your career change poses only limited disruption or adversity – or better still, proves to be win-win.

Negotiate Your Severance Package From a Position of Power

The most important aspect of a severance agreement opportunity is the negotiation. Employers are prone to offer a standard lopsided severance package. But employees can and should press to negotiate fair terms and conditions that serve their individual needs and circumstances. At Kathleen Cahill Law, I help employees evaluate their options and determine the best course of action to achieve that fair outcome. I understand that each client's situation is unique, and I work closely with you and tenaciously for you to ensure that your interests are the priority in the negotiation process.

About Severance Pay

Compensation, including bonuses and commissions, continuation of benefits, preservation of any equity, and freedom to pursue future opportunities without undue restrictions or prohibitions on competition are the crucial aspects of any severance agreement. I evaluate the financial benefits offered and determine if they properly reflect your tenure and hard work for the employer and are fair and reasonable for someone of your experience level in your specific industry. We also consider the state of your industry and the realities of our times during these negotiations. Recent years have been tumultuous for business and employees alike, featuring a pandemic, layoffs, and economic uncertainty. Whether the times are good or bad, a career transition can present great anxiety and uncertainty. It is your circumstances, your rights, your needs that drive my work to get you a strong and binding severance deal that is at a minimum fair, and ideally win-win.
