California Wrongful Termination Attorneys

Los Angeles Severance Agreement Lawyer

California employers have extensive latitude when it comes to hiring and firing according to their own views of business needs and priorities. In some situations, however, companies enter employment contracts with executives or other key employees and then breach their obligations under those contracts. We aggressively seek maximum compensation in these breach-of-contract cases by negotiating aggressive severance agreements.

Recovering Compensation for Key Employees Whose Employment Contracts Have Been Breached

Our California wrongful termination lawyers have successfully pursued numerous high-value claims for people who have been terminated in violation of their contractual rights. We have negotiated seven-figure severance agreements for employees of major Southern California employers, including such results as:

  • A $9 million settlement on behalf of a wrongfully terminated investment broker
  • A $5 million settlement on behalf of two whistleblowers against a publicly traded company in Southern California
  • A substantial confidential settlement for a group of salespeople terminated by an employer attempting to avoid payment of commissions they had already earned

Hadsell Stormer & Renick LLP has brought suit in state and federal court against scores of major corporations, including Texaco, Unocal, Verizon, Disney, ConocoPhilips, Northrup, MCA/Universal, Wal-Mart, US Tobacco, Amgen, and many others.
