It can be invaluable for executives, directors and senior managers to take advice when reviewing a new contract, or renegotiating terms and conditions. After all, the business will expect you to do so at work, to ensure the protection of its interests. Consider this part of your personal due diligence.
Even if the contract is presented as a standard term document, at senior-level appointments, there will always be some scope for some revision. Shine Lawyers understand the importance of handling that process delicately, and striking the right balance to keep relationships on the right footing.
We will cut through the legal jargon, to give you a plain English reading, and identify the key implications for you. You will then be able to form your own view as to the risk-reward ratio, with our assistance in proposing alternatives which improve your position where this really counts for you.
It is only natural that on joining an organisation, or upon promotion to a senior role, the focus is on achieving a successful relationship. However, it is still important to pay attention to the exit provisions, and post-termination obligations, to ensure that these are not unfairly balanced and so you have sufficient protection.
A well-managed negotiation can enhance your reputation. It demonstrates that you have good attention to detail and are proactive about addressing issues of importance, while remaining solutions-focused. Getting the tone and content right is key to a successful outcome.
