Terminated After 26 Years – Siegel & Dolan Negotiates Settlement Agreement
When I was terminated from my employer of 26 years, Marc was the perfect person to represent me. He was highly recommended by my network. He was compassionate about my situation and listened to all that had transpired. He talked me through his strategy recommendation and then took control of the negotiation with my former employer. Marc was able to put our best arguments forward while remaining calm and professional. I believe I got a fair deal from my employer and kept my professionalism and dignity in the process. I highly recommend Marc Siegel.C.P. ,

Featured Case Study
Severance Package Negotiation
Siegel & Dolan successfully negotiated a multi-million-dollar severance pay package for a departing sales executive who claimed he was owed unpaid commission compensation. The sales executive sought commission payment under a sales compensation plan for a large deal he helped close.
The company argued that it had the discretion to modify the terms of the plan including commission rates and calculations for payouts to the sales executive and it was within its rights to pay only a portion of the owed commission. After extensive negotiations, the company ultimately agreed to pay the sales executive almost $2,000,000 dollars as part of a severance pay package.
Featured Case Study
Siegel & Dolan represented a female advertising executive who took a medical leave of absence from work due to her surgery. Generally speaking, per the Family and Medical Leave Act, she was supposed to be restored to her previous position, or an equivalent position at the conclusion of her approved FMLA leave.
Unfortunately, when she returned from her leave, the company did not restore her to her previous position. She was told that rather than leading the client account and managing the client team, she would be in a subordinate role. Our client was understandably upset and needed assistance in exiting the company. Siegel & Dolan was able to successfully negotiate a substantial separation package that allowed her to transition to the next phase of her career.
