Skilled Legal Counsel For Energy Industry Professionals
Cyclical economic pressures caused by price declines and spikes in the oil and gas industry are well-known. But what happens when those pressures or other unforeseen factors put your professional employment at risk?
At Warren & Siurek, L.L.P., in Houston, we have a proven record of helping executives and professionals who work in the energy industry assert their legal rights. If you are facing an employment dispute, we can provide skilled guidance on how to move forward toward a positive resolution.
What Specific Issue Are You Facing?
Our attorneys handle a full range of employment law issues for oil and gas executives and highly compensated professionals. This includes:
- Severance compensation — If you’re being let go, it’s time to consider your legal options for maximizing severance pay.
- Noncompete agreements — Covenants not to compete and confidentiality agreements are enforceable in Texas only if certain legal tests are met. We will make sure your interests are protected.
- Health or benefits issues — A complicated federal law called ERISA provides protection against breaches by employers of duties regarding employer-sponsored benefit plans. This includes benefits such as incentive stock options, health insurance, traditional pension plans and retirement accounts.
