Recruiting, retaining and motivating executives are essential to any profitable and successful enterprise. But that is just the beginning. Creating shareholder value, heading off litigation, preserving intellectual property, delivering tax effective solutions, implementing succession planning, analyzing and preparing for the effects of business combinations and reorganizations are vital concerns as well. Our attorneys bring practical business sense to bear on the compensation issues that arise in today's highly regulated and competitive marketplace.
Studying each client's unique requirements, we employ an integrated, multidisciplinary approach, considering comparables, competitive market position, public disclosure issues, securities laws, regulatory and compliance issues, intellectual property, information technology, tax concerns, corporate governance, shareholder dynamics, as well as plain old business sense to resolve our client's needs.
Our attorneys assist with every aspect of executive compensation, including negotiating employment agreements, severance agreements, change-in-control agreements, indemnification arrangements, deferred compensation arrangements, long term incentive plans, and advising on retention issues arising out of leveraged buyouts, mergers and acquisitions, and restructurings. Working with our Life Sciences, Corporate, Securities, Financial Institutions, Intellectual Property, Tax, Employee Benefits, Labor & Employment and Litigation practice groups, we tailor solutions that are specific to our client's needs. Our clients include compensation committees and boards of directors of publicly traded corporations, hedge funds, private equity funds, senior executives, CEO's and leaders of major financial institutions, real estate enterprises, family offices, news and entertainment companies.
