Yankwitt LLP Represents Business in Severance Package Negotiation

Yankwitt LLP represented a prominent small business in severance negotiations with a long-term employee who was terminated due to a subpar performance. The negotiations were complicated by the fact that the employee lived on the client’s property and would need to vacate the premises during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Using both an aggressive and creative approach, Yankwitt LLP succeeded in resolving the employment matter and persuaded the employee to vacate without resorting to litigation and without securing significant attorneys’ fees.

Yankwitt LLP represents businesses of all sizes in a broad spectrum of pre-litigation employment disputes, from employment agreement review to severance agreement negotiations, as well as providing litigation support to transactional attorneys on their employment matters.
