August 2022 Business Law Newsletter

I hope this email finds you and your family in good health.  It’s been a hot summer and I hope you have found ways to stay cool and enjoy summer, whether at the beach or in the mountains or in travels or other out of door pursuits you enjoy. Over the last two decades, we in New England have been quite spoiled by the many successful seasons the Red Sox have achieved over the past 20 years, so this summer at Fenway Park has been difficult, but even with less than stellar performance by the home town team, it’s still a great evening to see the Green Monster, Pesky Pole, the Triangle and bleachers filled to capacity, the wave ever rising as it goes through the RF stands and all of us belting out Sweet Caroline in the 8th inning.  So, however you are enjoying summer, hope it’s a good one for you and I now wanted to reach out to offer my monthly update. This update includes a link to register for the kickoff meeting of Boston Entrepreneurs Network (ENET) that occurs in 3 weeks – our first live meeting in more than two years, plus information on a similar meeting I moderated pre-Covid. This update also includes links to my article on executive bonuses published 12 days ago at the IvyExec career advancement website, and links to two earlier articles of mine also on executive topics, published in recent years by CEOWorld magazine, and finally a special offer that you may find valuable. I hope these items might be of some benefit. 😊

Are you a C-level or a senior executive who has experienced or fears disparagement?  Sometimes disparagement and even defamation can make a C-level or senior executive toxic in your industry.  My article published by CEOWorld last year tells how I succeeded in helping C-level and senior executive clients overcome this potential blackball, in three very different career threatening situations, that could have derailed their rising careers, as well as further advice on non-disparagement terms to include in any further separation agreement. More Details Here
