Executive Compensation


Clients count on our executive compensation team for advice on transactions, compensation design and disclosure, and governance and regulatory matters.


Our broad transactional and advisory practice serves companies, boards of directors, compensation committees, fund sponsors and individual executives. Collaborating closely with colleagues throughout the firm, we design innovative compensation arrangements and navigate sensitive governance and disclosure issues. Clients enlist our counsel in connection with public and private transactions, private equity and other investment funds, securities offerings, and bankruptcies and restructurings.

Clients turn to us for representation in compensation and benefit matters before the SEC, IRS, DOL and PBGC. We advise clients on interactions with proxy advisers, special-interest stakeholders and the media. Our lawyers are widely regarded as leading advisers on senior executive employment and separation agreements, carried interest, stock options and other equity-based compensation, golden parachute arrangements, deferred compensation and related tax considerations.
