Employment, separation and other executive compensation arrangements may at first blush seem like "standard" contracts which do not require special expertise to draft. However, lack of familiarity with the myriad legal and regulatory rules which can impact these agreements can cause costly and embarrassing problems and unwanted litigation. Our experienced panel will cover a number of the points anyone tasked with drafting one of these agreements should have some knowledge of including:

  • Dodd-Frank and other securities laws
  • The impact of ISS and corporate governance best practices
  • 409A and 280G
  • Healthcare non-discrimination rules
  • State law
  • Other considerations
