Compensation, Benefits & Employment
M&A Advisory Services
Working together with our Corporate Department, our attorneys assist the firm’s clients in solving a myriad of executive compensation and benefits issues that arise in connection with our firm’s robust transactional practice.
In connection with representing our firm’s clients in mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, leveraged buy-outs, financings, and other, similar transactions, our specialists negotiate and draft incentive, retention and equity programs, employment agreements and restrictive covenant arrangements that are often required in such transactions. We also focus on deferred compensation arrangements and the related requirements under Internal Revenue Code Section 409A, the golden parachute rules under Internal Revenue Code Section 280G, and any other tax, securities, and corporate governance issues that need to be addressed and resolved in change of control and other situations.
In addressing these issues, we understand the goals and desired outcomes that our clients demand. Along with our traditional legal due diligence, this allows us to provide advice and guidance to our clients that is designed to maximize their results. Corporate transactions are by definition finite events, but our attorneys recognize that there are long-term consequences far beyond the “closing date.” Our forward-looking perspective ensures that our clients will be successful long after the deal is done.
