Executive Employment Representations


In the executive employment field, I use my 30-years business and tax experience (including tax training with an LL.M. in Taxation from NYU, received in 1986), to bring quality representation to senior executives in a wide range of fields in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey and around the county.


In this work I represent the CEO, or other C-Level executives (COO, CMO, CSO, CTO, CFO etc.), or other senior executives such as VPs and Directors, on your personal employment, equity, change of control, severance or wrongful termination situation.

My work typically involves structuring, negotiating, drafting  or advising on any one or more of the following:


  • Offer letters, term sheets or employment contracts,
