The attorneys assist individuals and companies throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia in drafting, review, and negotiation of executive employment contracts. Prior to initiation of employment, they will assist the client, guiding the candidate or prospective employer through the process of negotiating an agreement that will provide certainty in future employment relations, ensuring that the agreement is valid under federal, state, and local laws, including the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and that our client is receiving maximum benefit from the agreements. Issues the lawyers will see are thoroughly addressed during the process, covering tangible and intangible benefits, include:

  • Restrictive covenants/non-compete agreements that will govern the employee’s ability to accept other employment

Attorneys Holland and Maloney represent clients in cases in state and federal courts throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia.
