We help clients to navigate the complex corporate considerations and complicated tax and securities laws needed to develop effective executive compensation and employment contracts, including Section 409A and SEC rules. We counsel clients on the full range of compensation and benefit options, including nonqualified retirement plans, supplemental executive retirement plans, deferred compensation arrangements, excess benefit plans, short-term bonus programs, long-term incentive programs, incentive stock option plans, nonqualified stock option plans and other executive-level benefits.
Our team helps to integrate non-compete, non-solicitation, non-recruitment and non-disclosure agreements as needed. We consider each client's company culture and past practices to ensure the terms in new employee agreements do not conflict with agreements already in place. We also help clients to determine how much flexibility their company needs when severing employment relationships with executives.
