Our employee benefits lawyers are skilled at assisting clients through the maze of interconnected tax, ERISA and securities regulation governing executive compensation and nonqualified deferred compensation arrangements.
We regularly review, negotiate and draft individual employment, severance, change-in-control and non-competition agreements.
Nonqualified Deferred Compensation & Equity Arrangements
We counsel clients on the design, implementation, and administration of a wide variety of elective and non-elective equity and cash-based executive compensation plans. Our nonqualified plan practice consists of designing, implementing and administering deferred compensation plans, excess benefit plans, and supplemental executive retirement plans (“SERPs”), commonly referred to as top-hat plans.
Life, Health and Other Welfare Benefits
Our practice group also has significant experience advising on the structure, design, and taxation of life, health, and other welfare benefit arrangements. This includes the application of the nondiscrimination rules, as well as post-employment health benefits.
Perquisites and Other Fringe Benefits
We provide counsel on the provision, negotiation, and taxation of perquisites as well as other fringe benefits such as company-provided transportation
