We draft executive agreements with extensive experience

Manage risks with a well-crafted executive agreement.

An employment contract, often referred to as an executive agreement, is usually made with employees in leadership positions. However, it is not always necessarily an employment relationship, and for this reason, the executive contract should always be examined on a case-by-case basis. Merely the title of the contract does not define the employment relationship. Only the content of the contract determines what kind of agreement it actually is.

The assessment of the contractual relationship starts with whether the executive operates under the supervision and control of the employer. For example, a CEO is generally not in an employment relationship and therefore not subject to employment law, but it would still be advisable for them to have a written CEO contract.

Why then is it smartest for a lawyer to draft an executive agreement?

An executive agreement differs in many ways from a standard employment contract, for example, in terms of working hours, salary, severance pay, and non-compete clauses. A well-crafted executive agreement is in the interest of both the company and the executive, especially to avoid disagreements.

We assist our clients in negotiating the terms of the executive agreement and in drafting the contract terms. In case of disputes, we also help our clients in conciliation negotiations and in the dispute process from the court to arbitration.
