Alan is a Partner in our Executive Compensation & Employee Benefits Department, and is our primary transactional lawyer for compensation and benefits matters.  Alan also represents executives and management teams of public and private companies in a variety of industries on their employment and equity arrangements, often in change of control situations.

Alan’s work covers all facets of our executive compensation and employee benefits practice, including negotiating employment arrangements, designing and implementing incentive compensation plans (including carry arrangements), evaluating non-competition and non-solicitation covenants, and addressing ERISA’s plan asset rules for private investment funds.

Alan uses a common sense, commercial approach to tackling clients’ executive compensation and employee benefits matters.  An experienced practitioner, with deep market knowledge, Alan is able to quickly identify critical issues, effectively communicate those issues to clients and opposing counsel, and provide constructive solutions.  As a result, Alan’s clients have come to rely on him as a “first” call advisor on matters both within his specialties and outside of them.

Alan joined Morrison Cohen in 2005, and was Co-Chair of our Compensation, Benefits & Employment Department from 2014 to 2019. Prior to joining Morrison Cohen, he practiced at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, where he began his compensation and benefits career.
