Executive compensation is complex. Companies need an experienced attorney who can help.
We represent public and private companies, and individual executives, in the negotiation, drafting and adoption of employment contracts, severance agreements, stock option plans and agreements, restricted stock plans, and other equity based and performance based compensation.
Any public or private company, as well as many non-profit organizations, may pay executive compensation.
Executive compensation includes all financial benefits executives receive as well as non-monetary perquisites. Salary, benefits, bonuses, stock options, restricted stock, and other equity based compensation are all included.
The board of directors or similar governing board of managers of a company typically authorizes executive compensation.
