Scott has represented hundreds of CEOs, COOs, CFOs, CIOs and other executives, mid-level managers, physicians, banking executives, salespersons, and others who have been terminated and offered a proposed severance agreement in exchange for signing a Release of Claims. Scott has often assisted his clients by obtaining fairer, more favorable severance terms, including greater lump sum payments, extended periodic payments, greater deferred compensation, extended health benefits, and the like. Scott helped one senior executive of a major financial firm recover more than $10 million in deferred compensation after being wrongly coerced into resigning after 20 years of employment. Scott also recently helped a terminated CEO recover more than $900,000 after he had been abruptly terminated without any severance, based on unsubstantiated rumors.
During the past three decades, Scott has negotiated hundreds of severance packages on behalf of medical doctors, corporate officers and key executives, human resource professionals, and other key employees, and he has helped many men and women obtain favorable employment contracts. He also has helped numerous employees negotiate challenges involving non-compete agreements.
