Our specialist employment lawyers are often asked to review contracts of employment or service agreements for employees and senior executives when they have been offered a new role.
Our team will explain the key provisions of the employment contract or service agreement to you, answer any questions that you have and highlight any contractual provisions which cause concern.
We can also assist with the negotiation of the terms of your contract, whether by advising you in the background and drafting correspondence for you to send to your new employer, or by writing to your new employer directly and suggesting amendments.
We can also review your existing contract of employment or service agreement to establish if there is any litigation risk with you accepting a positon with a new employer. For example, if your offer of employment is from a competitor of your current employer, or if you are subject to any restrictive covenants.
