Superstar Executives Seek Mailly Law
Mailly Law helps superstar executives negotiate their compensation agreements. Many company founders and the corporate directors realize that as vital as the founders were toward the creation of the company and its products, they are not the best person to lead the company through a public offering. So the board hires an experienced superstar executive, who has previously managed explosive growth and taken other companies public. Mailly Law represents those superstar executives who are taking a great risk moving from an established company to a riskier but promising young company. They want to mitigate those risks with a well-crafted compensation agreement that assures them that they will receive their stock options, warrants, restricted stock units, and other benefits for making the move. They know from hard experience that this agreement, like all contracts, should be in writing. They turn to seasoned counsel who has worked on these issues before because they need it done right. Their careers and reputations depend upon great representation.
Superstar Athletes Have Lawyers/Agents
Why Not Superstar Executives?
Why does a high-powered Senior Executive need a lawyer to negotiate his/her employment agreement?
A brief story illustrates: A former general counsel of a $ 25 billion Fortune 50 company was negotiating an agreement with a new employer. He is the prototypical high-powered executive and a great lawyer. Surely, he could negotiate the terms of his own employment agreement. Yet he was hamstrung by the conflict of negotiating the best deal for himself and the desire not to rock the boat with the new employer. He needed to turn to an experienced advisor who could negotiate the multi-million dollar contract on his behalf. He could let Mailly Law take the heat while he remained above the fray.
