maker in every step of the process. We provide the advocacy to empower you to negotiate a favorable executive package to suit your individual needs and goals.


What Steps Should I Take When Offered an Executive Package?

It is imperative that you do not sign any document until you have had the chance to take the documents home with you to review and calmly process the agreement.

Some things to consider in your executive package are:

* Non-compete/non-solicitation and restrictive covenants

* Bonuses and stock options

* Executive coaching and outplacement services

* Mutual non-disparagement and confidentiality clauses

At Bertelson Law, we offer a thorough review to help you determine how your particular situation would be impacted by signing, or if it would be appropriate to move forward negotiating changes to the agreement, such as increasing the amount the employer is offering, additional benefits, and/or language changes to the agreement.
