Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation

Overview

Tannenbaum Helpern clients rely on our attorneys to structure executive compensation packages and advise on special circumstances companies face when attracting and retaining executives, including CEOs, COOs, CFOs and others in similar roles. We are experienced in the negotiation and preparation of executive employment agreements, incentive compensation plans, and severance agreements.

We also advise employers and employees in M&A transactions in equity and incentive compensation, which includes stock options, restricted stock and “phantom equity," deferred compensation plans, and executive employment and severance agreements.

Our clients include those in all major industries, including finance and private equity, real estate, medical, legal, construction, clean energy, fashion, and talent acquisition.

  • Advised employers on corrections of errors and failures in qualified retirement plans, including late contributions to 401(k) plans, delinquent Form 5500 filings, U.S. DOL ERISA investigations and obtaining Voluntary Correction Program (VCP) compliance statements for employers’ qualified retirement plans.
