Executive Compensation & Counseling
Burns & Levinson advises high level executives in their compensation arrangements and management negotiations. We understand that executive compensation has become increasingly complex due to government regulations and market pressures, and we’re adept at helping clients manage the impact of both.
We have extensive experience advising on the complex issues that often arise with equity plans, executive compensation agreements and other employment benefit arrangements when clients are involved in mergers, acquisitions, public securities offerings, onboarding and terminations. Our team also advises on supplemental retirement plans, deferred compensation arrangements, executive employment and separation agreements, incentive programs and severance programs.
As a full-service law firm, we have the advantage of working cohesively with the other practices throughout the firm, particularly our Corporate, Employment and Tax practice groups. This collaboration results in the experience needed to navigate this dynamic area and tackle the many complex issues that frequently arise in executive compensation matters.
