Executive Compensation

Effective compensation programs must attract and retain key executives while balancing the interests of employers and equity holders. We work with our clients on a wide range of compensation arrangements in both an ongoing advisory role and in significant corporate events, such as mergers, acquisitions and initial public offerings. The firm has crafted hundreds of executive pay and board member packages in a climate of changing legal demands and controversy. 

Amid increasing scrutiny of executive compensation, we advise our public company clients and their compensation committees on a wide array of issues involving executive compensation, including:

  • Executive compensation program structure 
  • Say-on-pay considerations 
  • U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) disclosure requirements 
  • Proxy statement disclosures 
  • National securities exchange listed company standards 
  • SEC regulatory developments such as those related to pay ratio disclosure and other Dodd-Frank Act requirements 
  • Proxy advisory firm policies

We counsel public and private companies, individual executives, boards of directors, management teams, private equity and venture capital funds, financial institutions, and tax-exempt organizations with respect to the design and implementation of a full range of compensation arrangements, including:

  • Equity incentive plans and awards 
  • Executive employment agreements 
  • Management incentive compensation programs 
  • Supplemental executive retirement plans and other non-qualified deferred compensation plans 
  • Director compensation arrangements 
  • Severance agreements and policies 
  • Clawback policies
