Written by Firm | Jan 26, 2016 | Results

Robbins Firm attorneys recently assisted a company spokesperson in protecting his contract rights against a national tobacco company that had hired him to assist in producing and promoting a youth anti-smoking program. Following a merger, the tobacco company’s successor attempted to terminate the agreement and deny the spokesperson any additional compensation.  However, the spokesperson engaged the Robbins Firm, which presented the successor with contractual analysis showing that the purported termination was ineffective and that, pursuant to the “pay or play” compensation provision of the contract, its obligation to pay continued through the remainder of the contract’s term.  The successor company agreed to pay all outstanding amounts due under the contract.
