Senior executives

Events

The team has vast experience in helping senior executives with issues such as bonus disputes, the terms of their service agreements including their restrictive covenants, notice and garden leave periods, settlement agreements and whistleblowing. Our corporate team can also advise on a director’s share options and shareholdings.

We have also pursued claims in the employment tribunals on behalf of senior executives and helped them defend injunction proceedings where it is alleged that they are in breach of their restrictive covenants.
