Severance Agreements

Philadelphia Severance Agreement Attorneys

If you have been offered a severance agreement as part of a termination in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, it is critical that you have an attorney review the terms of the agreement. Our experienced attorneys can thoroughly review your separation agreement and explain in detail the terms of the agreement and potential ways to improve the proposed agreement, or help you to understand provisions relating to legal provisions in the agreement (general releases, noncompete provisions, nondisclosure provisions, nonsolicitation provisions, neutral reference provisions). We have reviewed and analyzed hundreds of severance and separation agreements and can provide specific advice regarding the risks and benefits to you in the agreement. 

Our Philadelphia lawyers can help you obtain a fair severance from your former employer, by negotiating with your employer for fair severance amounts, legal provisions and benefits (including COBRA, unemployment and other benefits) that are important to you, to allow you to move forward and continue with your career.  Depending upon your situation we can 1) review your agreement and explain the terms to you and the results of signing the agreement and/or 2) negotiate with your former employer to attempt to improve the terms of your severance package. A severance agreement may contain a 21 day or 45 day deadline, so it is important to consult with a severance agreement attorney as soon as possible after receiving a separation agreement.  For a consultation with a lawyer at Bell & Bell LLP regarding a severance agreement, call 215.569.2500 or contact us online.
