On March 20, Davis Malm shareholder Tamsin Kaplan spoke to the Woman to Woman Group, a group of high level executives and professional businesswomen, at New Directions, Inc. Tamsin shared the secrets of effectively negotiating employment agreements and severance agreements. In a two-hour presentation, she walked the group through the provisions of three model agreements and discussed dynamics, hidden agendas, tricks, and traps in negotiating each aspect. Tamsin specifically focused on restrictive covenants, including non-compete provisions, diverse forms of compensation, and negotiation of severance terms at the outset of the employment relationship.

“Tamsin is such a delight,” said New Direction’s Senior Consultant Joan Lampert. “My clients love listening to her. Her style is great for us: Knowledgeable, experienced, smart, personable, intimate, and funny—all at the same time.”

New Directions is an organization that assists accomplished professionals and people in business to create opportunities and make their next move within and beyond their careers.
