Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation
In this highly technical area, our group is widely known for their inventive and practical approach to solving problems and resolving business issues. Our team provides advice in connection with high-profile, multi-billion dollar M&A transactions, public proxy statements, compensation arrangements and ERISA fiduciary matters for investment funds and plan fiduciaries.
Employee benefits partner Lawrence Witdorchic will take part in a panel discussion at a Practising Law Institute seminar entitled "Tax Strategies for Corporate Acquisitions, Dispositions, Spin-Offs, Joint Ventures, Financings, Reorganizations & Restructurings." Larry's panel, "Dealing With Restricted Stock Options and Executive Compensation in Corporate M&A Transactions," will address, among other topics, compensation issues in M&A transactions, treatment of outstanding equity-based awards and tax issues in assuming or eliminating deferred compensation in an acquisition. The event will take place from November 2-5 in Chicago.
