Our Executive Compensation and Benefits group consists of five attorneys with extensive experience in executive compensation and benefits matters.  We advise clients in connection with the implementation, administration and interpretation of both tax-qualified and non-tax qualified benefit plans and arrangements, as described below.  Executive compensation and employee benefits issues, including their federal and state tax implications, continue to have a significant, if not growing, impact on mergers and acquisitions transactions.  Resolving compensation and benefits plan issues well in advance of a potential acquisition transaction offers the greatest chance of realizing the benefits intended under these plans and agreements.
