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 speak on a panel at the Practising Law Institute’s program, “Tax Strategies for Corporate Acquisitions, Dispositions, Spin-Offs, Joint Ventures, Financings, Reorganizations & Restructurings 2019.” Larry’s panel, “Dealing With Restricted Stock, Stock Options and Executive Compensation in Corporate M&A Transactions,” will discuss compensation issues in M&A transactions; treatment of outstanding equity-based awards, including restricted stock, stock options and assuming or eliminating deferred compensation in an acquisition; allocation of deductions between buyer and seller; and other topics. The event will take place from November 13 to 15 in Chicago.
