Executive Employment Law: Protecting Executives, Entrepreneurs and Employees provides practitioners and business executives with a working knowledge of executive employment-related negotiations and the laws governing executive employment in the United States. The book discusses strategies for negotiating employment contracts, separation (termination) agreements, non-compete agreements and founder's stock contracts.

In the wake of the most recent financial crisis as well as the relatively recent corporate scandals, the country appears more concerned than ever before with executive compensation practices. It seems that every call in Washington for a new stimulus or bailout package is inextricably linked with a call for limits on executive compensation in one form or another. However, politicians rarely, if ever, focus on how executive's compensation got to where it is.

The corporate lawyer who represents high ranking, and sometimes high profile, executives, requires a full understanding of the dynamics of executive compensation negotiations and the types of contracts executives enter into. The same can be said of in-house counsel responsible for advising their employer or compensation committee on executive hiring, retention or termination matters. There are myriad issues beyond the requirements of compensation reporting to consider, from negotiating the employment relationship to understanding compensation packages, to considering executive's mid-employment requests, to terminating the employment relationship, whether due to performance or merger.
