Representing Executives in Mergers
Negotiating Employment Contracts in Mergers
Regardless of where you are in the world, if you are an executive or employee of a company that has merged with another enterprise, you need an experienced lawyer to make certain your rights are protected. The company’s attorney will not and cannot take any action to protect your interests, if doing so conflicts with the company’s best interests. You need private counsel to help you negotiate a new employment agreement or release from it so you can pursue employment elsewhere.
The attorneys at the Palo Alto law office of Kastner Kim LLP have more than 150 years of combined training, powerful negotiation skills and extensive litigation experience. We focus on the needs of individuals and companies, including the aftermath of a merger.
Our attorneys have substantial negotiation and litigation experience and can quickly assess your situation and identify the best approach to protect your interests. We have represented thousands of clients throughout the world, recovering millions of dollars in claims for wrongful conduct.
Protecting Your Rights After a Change of Control
Kastner Kim’s attorneys are skilled legal professionals with significant experience representing executives in mergers. We represent employees who are being forced or asked to go over to the new company, but with a new employment agreement perhaps with diminished terms. We also protect the rights of individuals who prefer to leave the company and need protection against any limiting provisions of a non-compete agreement.
For more than 30 years, we have successfully resolved complex and time-sensitive issues related to the change of control or ownership at a business.
Kastner Kim’s archive of success stories includes representation of a target company undergoing acquisition, which required negotiation of 13 new employment agreements within the two day deadline.
