3 weeks of stalls and setbacks, then abruptly tells us to go away. I have a signed contract but they will not fulfill terms and now are trying to force me to sign a termination release. Is this legal.....(never mind unethical)

If you decide to sue you should be prepared to pay the filing fee and then pay another hundred bucks or so for service of process. Caveat: If a court of law...Read more »

I have Stock Appreciation Rights in my previous company that are still valid. If the company sold for more than $8 million, I should get some proceeds.

As you will so often hear from attorneys on this forum, it is impossible to provide an answer regarding a contract sight unseen. However, the contract very well could be "legal." If you have any money at stake it might be penny wise and pound foolish to fail to consult an attorney.
