This CLE webinar will provide employee benefits counsel a detailed analysis of current issues in structuring executive compensation arrangements. The panel will review the impact of recent regulations, pay-for-performance disclosures, challenges of retention-based compensation, clawback provisions, and other key issues. The panel will also discuss tax consequences, advantages and disadvantages, design and structuring, and implementation considerations in light of recent regulations.


Companies have several alternatives for providing executive compensation, including granting profits interests, capital interests, and options to acquire such interests. However, recent regulations provide a higher level of complexity that counsel must navigate to structure compensation arrangements.

Executive compensation arrangements present counsel with intricate design and structuring challenges. The changing priorities for C-suite executives and increased government and public scrutiny are key factors that have shifted the compensation landscape. The SEC adopted final rules requiring public companies to disclose the relationship between compensation paid and the company's financial performance. These final rules also implement the "Pay versus Performance" disclosure requirements established by Section 953(a) of the Dodd-Frank Act.

In addition, counsel must also consider the impact of ESG initiatives, increased pay transparency laws, Section 409A, 83(b) elections, and other key items when structuring executive compensation arrangements.

Listen as our panel discusses recent regulations and trends impacting compensation structures and offers solutions and strategic approaches for structuring executive compensation arrangements.
