Compensation and Benefits

Business Transactions and Bankruptcy Counseling

Our attorneys regularly assist clients with the compensation and benefits aspects of a wide range of business transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, spin-offs, private placements, and initial public offerings. We negotiate the disposition of compensation and benefits programs in mergers and acquisitions and identify potential plan-related liabilities, including plan underfunding, withdrawal liability, and plan qualification problems. We also counsel clients on how to protect employee compensation and benefits in change-in-control situations and on the tax code's golden parachute rules. Together with our bankruptcy lawyers, we advise clients on compensation and benefits issues in the bankruptcy context.
