Directors Roundtable: Navigating the Changing Landscape of Executive Compensation

Wednesday, November 4, 2015
08:00 AM - 10:30 AM Eastern Standard Time

Litigation partner Marc Sonnenfeld and Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation senior counsel Joseph Ronan and associate Erin Randolph-Williams will present in a Directors Roundtable on "Navigating the Changing Landscape of Executive Compensation."

In today’s ever-changing executive compensation landscape, the unwary can find themselves in unexpected and expensive pitfalls. To attract and maintain top talent while minimizing litigation risk, companies need to stay up to date on the compensation market, informed about governing rules and standards, and knowledgeable about best practices.

Calling on their broad experience with boards, compensation committees, and management teams, our distinguished speakers will present on the following topics:

  • Current Market for Executives, Directors, and their Compensation: includes review of The Wall Street Journal/Hay Group CEO Compensation Study
  • Managing Litigation Risk: Claims of excessive or inappropriate executive and director compensation
  • Review of 2015 Proxy Season and Executive Compensation Challenges: Approval of equity plans; ISS methodologies; clawbacks; and recent SEC proposals and final rules
  • Best Practices: Executive compensation governance; academic research on marrying pay for performance with corporate goals
