Senior executives

Farrers is strongly aware of how to look after clients and culturally sensitive to their needs.

Chambers & Partners

In addition to our work for employers, we are recognised by Chambers and the Legal 500 as market leaders in relation to work for senior executives and high-net-worth individuals on all employment and partnership-related issues.  We have particular expertise in advising senior employees, in particular from FTSE 100 and 250 companies and the financial services and private equity sectors, with such cases often involving the management of reputational risk. 

We understand that an individual addressing adverse issues at work can be facing an extremely emotional and anxious time.  Our lawyers will identify your goals at the outset and aim to guide you through the legal process with the minimum of stress, whilst striving for the best possible outcome.  Whether the outcome is a negotiated departure resulting in a compromise agreement, or court or tribunal proceedings, we have the ability to advise you every step of the way.

Significant experience

We also have significant experience of advising individuals who are thinking of leaving their current employer, possibly as part of a team move.  Where you are considering taking such a step, you should ensure that you take advice at the earliest opportunity so that you can be guided through the potential pitfalls which lay ahead.

Whilst we have significant experience dealing with issues arising at the end of an employment relationship, we can also advise you when you are entering into such a relationship.  Our lawyers are experienced in both advising on and negotiating contract terms and in particular, long-term incentive plans, bonus arrangements and restrictive covenants.
