This CLE/CPE webinar will offer executive compensation and benefits practitioners strategic insight on the impact of the newly enacted tax reform law. The panelists will summarize and lead a discussion of the potential planning opportunities and challenges presented by significant revisions to Section 162(m) affecting executive compensation deductions for public companies, new tax deferral features affecting private company equity compensation, changes impacting qualified retirement plans, and more.


The recent passage of tax reform alters the landscape for executive compensation and benefits counsel and for other advisors and corporate professionals who regularly interact with executive compensation, equity incentive and employee benefits planning and design.

Tax reform impacts deductibility of executive compensation for public companies, offers potential tax deferral opportunities for employees holding private company equity incentives and qualified retirement plans, each requiring thoughtful planning and careful consideration of the interplay between tax and securities law compliance, corporate governance and human capital management.

The webinar is designed to provide counsel, consultants and other tax and corporate professionals with insight into key changes affecting their practice and offer practical planning tips and techniques as we move forward under the new tax regime.
