Executive Compensation and Contracts

Employment contracts are drafted to make explicit the rights and obligations of both employers and employees in the workplace. It is vital that employment agreements be comprehensive and clear to avoid disputes and costly litigation. Executive compensation packages and contracts are designed to attract high level talent, and to encourage and reward outstanding performance. Employment incentives will often take the form of signing bonuses, cash performance bonuses, stock options, equity awards, comprehensive retirement benefits, and guaranteed severance packages, among other provisions. In reviewing, drafting and negotiating executive compensation packages and contracts, the complexity lies in structuring the contract in a manner that attracts and retains the best executive talent yet adequately protects a business or organization’s interests.
