If you are looking for an attorney experienced with employee benefit plans the attorneys at Cary Kane LLP are available to represent the plan. Our attorneys have experience handling day-to-day fund administration matters, litigating sophisticated ERISA issues in federal court and everything in between.
As an alternative to litigating in court, arbitration has become a popular option for resolving disputes. Arbitration is quicker and cheaper than litigation, but it is a legal process that should be handled by an experienced attorney who can make sure your rights are protected.
If you are being hired with an employment contract you should consider consulting an attorney to review or negotiate the agreement for you. Most employment agreements are not negotiated by an attorney for the employee because they consist of the company’s standard clauses, which the company is reluctant to change. In this instance you should have the proposed employment agreement reviewed by counsel to make sure you fully understand what it means. When hiring high level positions or employees in industries with a different culture, attorneys are used to negotiate the agreement. In this instance it might be foolish not to use an attorney to represent you in negotiations. Call Cary Kane at (212) 868-6300 today to speak with an attorney if you want attorney’s review or negotiation of your employment agreement.
If you are about to sign an employment contract to be hired as an executive, professional or managerial employee you should have the agreement reviewed by an attorney before you sign it, to make sure it says what you think it says. Very often employees think they have a binding agreement when in fact they do not. Conversely, there can be times when the employer doesn’t realize it has entered into a binding agreement and thinks instead that the employee is still covered by the employment- at-will doctrine. Verbal agreements may also be enforceable, but more frequently because of legal technicalities they very often are unenforceable.
