Executive Recruitment & Termination

What our employment lawyers do

The termination of a director or senior executive can be a critical event for any organisation. We have the skills and experience to guide the employer through this process, helping it make appropriate offers to attract the right talent, as well as informed tactical decisions in relation to any termination.

We appreciate the need for advance planning and analysis, prompt and pragmatic advice and the right balance of sensitivity and resilience in negotiations, all combined with a thorough understanding of corporate documents and underlying company law.

How our employment lawyers work

The employment group at DMH Stallard has deep experience of advising clients in many sectors on senior terminations.

We also act for senior executives in relation to severance agreements in both the private and public sectors.

In the public and third sectors, experience from our leading public sector practice gives us a clear understanding of employment disputes in the context of the exercise of statutory powers.
