Should I negotiate my package under a settlement agreement?

Remember your settlement agreement has been written by your employer so it is important it benefits you too.

We always take the view that it is better to ask and not get than always wonder what if. Sometimes clients instruct us that they are happy with the amount and do not want to negotiate – that’s fine too. Sometimes rarely the deal is so good it needs to be accepted and it is just about the wording of the settlement agreement.

To avoid simply looking like Oliver asking for “more”, we can bring in our unique experience to look at the reasons why you should ask for more. We can negotiate on your behalf and have a good track record for doing so.

Some senior executives choose to negotiate themselves as they have a good relationship with the decision maker – that’s fine too. We can discuss this in the initial appointment and if you are to negotiate yourself, give you some pointers for best results.
