As the leader of an organisation, a director’s role and responsibilities must be clearly defined.  As contract law specialists, with over 30 years’ experience in multiple jurisdictions, our team will draft, negotiate and/or update your directors’ services contracts swiftly and cost-effectively.

Partnering with you to drive performance and results

Many of our solicitors have worked in the City and for multi-nationals.  Their intelligence and razor-sharp knowledge of commercial reality give our clients confidence that their directors’ service contracts will assist in achieving growth and targets.

By working to understand your business, we can draft a comprehensive directors’ agreement that covers:

  • salary
  • place of work
  • protecting the company’s IP and trade secrets
  • profit sharing, bonuses, and stock options
  • expenses and allowances
  • responsibilities and duties
  • restrictive covenants or restraint of trade clauses
  • pensions
  • disciplinary procedure
  • grievance procedure
  • dismissal

 

Encouraging investment

A well-drafted directors’ service contract demonstrates that you are a well-organised, effectively run organisation.  It also shows that your business is well-prepared for contingency situations.  Naturally, this is very attractive to potential investors.

International entities

Our solicitors have experience working in many international jurisdictions.  If you require a directors’ service contract for one of your overseas offices, we can arrange for it to be drafted in accordance with local laws and business customs.  We can also arrange for the agreement to be translated into the local language and/or English, so all parties have a clear understanding of the contractual terms.

 

 

How we can help

By instructing us to draft and/or negotiate your directors’ services contracts, you can be confident that not only will they contain the clauses required to meet your objectives, but they will be robustly negotiated to ensure your best interests are protected.  Because we work with corporations and directors on a regular basis, we have a deep understanding of the motivations of both parties to a directors’ services contract.  This allows us to provide practical, commercially astute advice, beyond the capabilities of many other law firms.
