Employment Law for Directors and Senior Executives

When it comes to senior executives and company directors, specialist knowledge of the intricacies of company and employment law are needed – and here at Wards Solicitors we have all the expertise needed to advise you.

Being an employee at executive or director level, for example, often brings a range of benefits -including bonus schemes and share options – which require both company and employment law advice. We are also well positioned to help on aspects of corporate governance and statutory obligations under the Companies Acts.

As well as advising you if you are considering leaving a business – including concerns relating to employment, directorship and shareholding issues, our experience encompasses:

  • Reviewing employment contracts and looking at terms and conditions;
  • Understanding the statutory obligations when the company involved is a PLC or AIM company;
  • Reviewing and negotiating shareholder and investment agreements;
  • Advising on the application and enforceability of post-termination restrictive covenants;
  • Advising directors and non-exec directors on obligations binding at board level;
  • Advising on corporate governance issues;
  • Assisting business owners to go their separate ways using mediation or negotiation to agree the future of the business ownership or management;
  • Advising partners on dissolution, transfer or retirement from the partnership.

Important notice: please read

Cyber-crime is on the increase and solicitor transactions can be hijacked by scammers. This commonly takes the form of email or phone interception.  At the start of our working relationship we will provide you with terms of business that include our account details – these will never change.

Please be aware that we will never ask you to send money to a different bank account, particularly by email. If you receive a request for money from us please check that everything matches the details in our terms of business.

If you receive an email giving any other bank account please telephone us immediately without replying to the email or sending any money. We accept no responsibility if you transfer money to a bank account which is not ours.
