McCandlish’s Employment, Executive Compensation and Termination Litigation attorneys frequently represent directors, officers, managers, and executives, in connection with employment, compensation and termination disputes. Our attorneys have successfully represented the employment rights of executives from government contracting firms, environmental remediation companies, Alaska native corporations, physician groups, and many other corporations, professional corporations, partnerships and other entities.
We have prosecuted violations of written employment contracts and improper terminations effecting severance benefits (PTO, incentive compensation bonuses, deferred compensation warrants, options, etc.) and other benefits payable under executive compensation arrangements. McCandlish lawyers additionally represent minority shareholders when majority shareholders use employment termination as one element in a shareholder oppression scheme.
Often, these cases can be resolved through alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or arbitration. A precise analysis of the important documents can lead to a hearing on the most salient aspects of the dispute, resulting in a negotiated settlement. Other cases cannot be resolved in this manner, and McCandlish’s employment litigators do not hesitate to vigorously pursue all claims and defenses and, where appropriate, seek attorneys’ fees and costs, in state and federal court.
Each case is unique. So, previous results are no guarantee of a specific outcome in your case. However, our extensive experience in employment, executive compensation and termination cases will help you construct a strategy for addressing your dispute.
