February 2022 Business Law Newsletter

I hope this email finds you and your family in good health.  Hopefully you and your family have been hanging in there over this cold New England January and now recent snow storm, perhaps even taking advantage with some skiing, snowboarding, ice fishing, pond hockey or other winter past-times. For me, it’s been a nice month vacationing (and ocean swimming) in South Florida, and for any of you who also escaped the cold, I hope you too enjoyed this chance to re-visit summer weather and activities.  Sorry to see the Pats and old friend Tom Brady go down in the playoffs, but both had their runs and at least each made it to the tournament.  We hope the same will be true for the Celtics and Bruins as they each seeks to find their winning form through this winter sports season.  As always, I hope you and your family are staying safe as best you can as we all now enter our 3rd year (and God-willing last year) of the pandemic. I write to you today to stay in touch and also update you.  This update includes a link to register for tonight’s Boston Entrepreneurs Network (ENET) webinar which I organized (however, there will be a pinch-hitter for me, as moderator, since I will be in transit today from FL).  This update also includes links to an article I wrote that was published last Wednesday at the IvyExec Career Advice website and two other articles of mine, published earlier by CEOWorld magazine, with all three articles on executive topics, and finally a special offer that you may find valuable. I hope these items might be of some benefit.  In any case, all best wishes to you and yours for a good February (including my hopes to attend a Valentine’s Day evening BU-NU beanpot hockey final at TD Garden) 😊

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 in April 2021, tells how I succeeded in helping three different C-level and senior executive clients overcome this potential blackball that could have derailed their rising careers, as well as further advice on non-disparagement terms to include in any further separation agreement.
