Lawyers Handling Employment Issues and Independent Contractor Agreements

Support for independent manufacturer representatives, distributors and sales representatives

A solid employment contract protects companies, employees and independent contractors. A well-drafted agreement minimizes the risks and liabilities of all parties. Our knowledgeable business lawyers at Kramer & Kramer have more than 75 years of combined experience drafting firm contracts and reviewing agreements to ensure their enforceability.

Drafting solid employment agreements

Employment contracts are only as effective as the terms and conditions contained in them. A court is unlikely to uphold an agreement that includes unreasonable or unenforceable provisions. Kramer & Kramer assists employers and employees in drafting effective employment contracts and independent contractor agreements. We review contract terms, carefully explain the agreements, identify potential legal problems and advise clients on steps they can take to protect themselves and achieve their desired goals.  We draft and review:

  • Non-compete agreements
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Severance pay agreements
  • Executive compensation packages
  • Employee handbook provisions
  • Vacation, bonuses, stock options, incentives and commission pay
  • Use of company computers, phones and faxes
  • Breach of contract

Companies change over time, and so do their needs and interests. Kramer & Kramer provides ongoing consultative services to businesses, employees and independent contractors to address shifts in circumstances.

Flexibility of virtual general counsel

Virtual general counsel is designed to fill a vital business need while controlling expenses. As virtual counsel, we work cooperatively as a member of our client’s team. We commit defined, but flexible, resources tailored to the client’s specific needs, including:

  • Handling routine corporate and business legal needs and questions
  • Negotiating business deals
  • Handling employee contracts and issues
  • Managing outside legal resources and project budgets
