Outten & Golden attorneys are highly skilled and experienced at negotiating the terms of financial services agreements and we are aggressive about protecting our clients from entering into agreements that are unfair or that could later prevent them from working in the financial services industry. We work tirelessly for our clients to ensure both that they are protected from unfair and unreasonable obligations and that their agreements are sound and well structured.
Financial services agreements are agreements for individuals within the financial services industry. These may include offer letters, employment agreements, equity agreements, shareholder agreements, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, partnership agreements, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, and severance agreements.
Financial services agreements are complicated, potentially affecting not only the terms and conditions of the working relationship, but also a client’s future ability to work. For that reason, we counsel clients not to sign these agreements without speaking to an attorney first.
