Our experienced corporate attorneys guide our clients through the complexities of federal and state executive compensation laws. This practice includes negotiating, drafting, and implementing deferred compensation and equity compensation arrangements. We are proud to represent clients spanning a broad spectrum from start-up companies to growing and mature companies.
We also advise on the recruitment of senior executives, profits interest plans and agreements, employment severance and change in control agreements, and compliance with applicable tax, securities, disclosure, corporate governance, fiduciary, and other requirements. In all facets of our representation, we work closely with our clients and their directors and officers to ensure all options are reviewed and all considerations made. Further, we work closely with our clients’ accounting and financial professionals to deliver comprehensive solutions.
Effective counsel in this area of practice requires diligence. To this end, we continually keep our clients abreast of all developments in the field. The tax rules and regulations of Sections 409A concerning deferred compensation are always being updated, and your legal counsel must be up to speed at all times. We monitor the rules and regulations promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission, IRS, and Financial Accounting Standards Board. Our attorneys also appear before government agencies to petition for private letter rulings on behalf of our clients.
