Settlement Agreements

Settlement Agreements

We are highly experienced in drafting, negotiating and advising on settlement agreements. Leaving employment can be a stressful time. We will guide you through the process, and work with you to ensure you understand the agreement and that it meets your needs.

People are at the heart of what we do

A settlement agreement is a contract under which an employee agrees to waive their rights to pursue claims against their employer, usually in return for a compensation payment. They are often used when an employment relationship ends, and will include terms dealing with a range of matters that arise on termination. It is necessary to seek a lawyer’s advice on a settlement agreement so that you understand its terms and get the best deal for you.

Whether it is advising on your share option position, helping you manage your reputation through the agreement of a reference, or advising you on post termination restrictions so you know clearly what you can and can’t do in future, we can provide advice.

Many agreements will be concluded and signed off quickly. However, where the agreement isn’t right for you we can advise you on how best to negotiate a better deal.  We frequently negotiate on our clients’ behalf, and will often secure better terms.

MD of a training business

I had reason to call on Julian Taylor Solicitors’ expertise as I needed some expert advice on a settlement agreement with an ex employer. They were recommended to me by a friend who works in HR who had achieved some excellent outcomes working with Nicola Wallbank. I found Nicola to be extremely professional and helpful. She carefully guided me through the process and stepped in whenever a problem with the employer occurred. We ultimately reached a satisfactory and painless outcome which was a testament to Nicola’s patience and professionalism. I have no hesitation in recommending Nicola and Julian Taylor Solicitors (and indeed I have done so on many an occasion).
