Executive Compensation and Fringe Benefits

We devote a significant part of our practice to executive compensation. We advise clients extensively on section 409A compliance, and have redesigned and redrafted many executive agreements, plans and programs to comply with Section 409A’s complex rules.  We routinely design and draft plans including SARs, stock options, parachute agreements, and executive retention and severance agreements. We also obtain rulings on these issues, and counsel clients on compliance-related issues under section 83, section 162(m) and section 404.
