Health Care Executive Faces Potential Wrongful Termination

The Client

A senior health care executive

The Problem

The client, who had served as Chief Operating Officer, had worked to create the health care organization from the ground up and to grow it into a significant player in the state's healthcare sector. Years later, the founding executive director retired, and a new executive director arrived with a new team and strategic plan that deviated substantially from the practices that the client had implemented. The client's situation was becoming untenable.

The Approach

Brian worked with the client to analyze the terms of his employment agreement and to develop a strategy that would place him in the best position in the event his employer tried to terminate his contract. When the inevitable termination attempt took place, Brian negotiated the employee's departure with the employer's outside counsel.

The Result

Brian and his client obtained a favorable settlement beyond the severance terms in the employment agreement, allowing the client flexibility and time to consider future opportunities.
