Offer Letters and Employment Agreements from the Executive’s Perspective

The executive compensation attorneys at George Birnbaum Law have negotiated deals involving executive compensation ranging from hundreds of thousands to many millions of dollars in salary and incentives.

Experience has taught our attorneys that no two executives are alike in their personal and professional goals, styles, or circumstances.

Experience has taught our attorneys that no two executives are alike in their personal and professional goals, styles, or circumstances. Whether in financial services, media, higher education, or other sectors, we’ve seen offer letters that romance prospective employees with huge salaries as well as bonuses and other enticing benefits and incentives. But these letters are not binding contracts, and the devil is always in the details – whether those details are present or absent.

That’s where we come in. Our executive compensation attorneys devise ways to further enhance those preliminary offers and convert them into binding employment agreements, while putting added protections firmly in place for our clients – protections experience has taught us even the most sophisticated professionals may not know they should have.
