Our attorneys handle executive compensation disputes with the aggressive but sensible approach that have become a hallmark of the Law Offices of Jeremy Pasternak. We have represented hundreds of clients in both the entertainment and technology sectors. Our attorneys know that solving executive compensation disputes requires attention to the legal issues with full attention to the overall goals of our clients. This includes being aware of and respecting the employee/client’s standing in the marketplace, and recognizing the reputational damage that can result from a poorly handled or poorly presented claim.
When you work with our lawyers to protect your income, we take the time to understand the complete picture. We listen attentively to the legal problem that has brought you to the firm, as well as your long-term goals, to provide with practical answers about your legal options.
We recognize that executive-level employees are often reticent to file suit. There are, however, other options, including administrative filings as well as off the public record negotiations. However, if negotiations are not a viable option to achieving results in line with the goals of our clients, we are well-equipped to litigate the dispute to protect the best interests of our clients.
Executive Commissions And Bonuses
You earn commissions, incentive pay and bonuses through hard work and dedication. When your employer uses fine print or strained language or logic to deny you the money you have earned, you have the right to take legal action. Even if you are a high wage earner or are considered to be integral to the company’s operation, you still have the right to take legal action against an employer who refuses to pay.
Our lawyers are prepared to address a wide range of executive compensation concerns, including:
- Disputes over equity-based compensation, including stock options, appreciation rights, purchase plans and stock equivalents
- Deferred compensation and retirement benefits issues
- Restrictive covenants in an executive employment contract
If you believe your right to compensation has been compromised, you need to have a lawyer in your corner who is well-versed in contract and employment law principles and has experience in the full range of methods of dispute resolution.
