Executive compensation – a complex and increasingly scrutinized aspect of corporate governance – plays a vital role in attracting, retaining and motivating key executives. For that reason, we advise executives, boards of directors and management teams of both public and private companies on the many considerations of executive compensation. We assist our clients with:
- Employment agreements;
- Equity compensation plans covering stock options, restricted stock, stock appreciation rights and other equity incentives;
- Supplemental retirement plans and non-qualified deferred compensation plans;
- Section 409A issues, 280G issues and other tax matters;
- Executive severance and change in control agreements; and
- 10b5-1 trading plans.
