Letter of 
    I've never sought a "letter of recommendation" so I was pleasantly surprised when I got this one. I couldn't pass up sending it along. Thanks so much. KK
    Letter of Commendation for Ken and his team.
    I have been in business for over 40 years, and in my career have used various attorneys for the multitude of matters that any business person encounters. Contract law, collections, personal law, great business advice, acquisitions, employment matters, vendor contracts, etc. I have never in my years of doing business have felt so comfortable dealing with Ken and his amazing Team. Starting with my first discussion with Eileen, every one of Kens Team is amazing in every way. You know you are at home with a law firm when making daily business decisions, my staff asks “ have you asked “Ken”?
    Thank you Eileen, Ken, Kieren, Jodi, Jennifer and the entire Kirschenbaum Team.
   Everyone at Forest Security. Illinois.
loan to employee
    I have an employee that I want to give a nice raise to, but I want a commitment from him that he will work for 2 more years. Is that doable with your employment contract?
Thank you
name withheld
    It's almost impossible to force an employee to continue working for you. I would not structure your idea as a raise conditioned upon 2 years of service. I think the better way would be a loan, a forgivable loan. This could be added to the Employment Agreement or documented with a Promissory Note. If the employee fails to complete the employment commitment then the balance of the loan becomes due and payable. With some imagination the raise could be escrowed and paid upon completion of the specified employment period. You need to engage counsel [K&K] for this documentation.
changing limitation of liability
A potential customer recently asked us for a change to the limitation of liability in section 24. They are “requesting a higher amount (i.e. contract purchase price) in the event FCSS is negligent.”
Would you be able to let me know what should be offered in response to this request?
    You will not be able to raise the limitation in any significant way. There are other ways to deal with the provision. Engage me to negotiate if the job is worth it. See articles below:
