Providing Effective Executive Compensation Counsel to Clients

Our attorneys have extensive experience in handling complex executive compensation matters.

The attorneys in Parsons Behle & Latimer’s tax practice group handle a variety of executive compensation issues for clients. We set up equity incentive programs including incentive stock options, non-statutory stock options, restricted stock, phantom stock, and stock appreciation rights. We advise on non-qualified deferred compensation plans under Section 409A including rabbi and secular trusts. Additionally, we advise on qualified plans (see ERISA), top hat, and excess benefit plans as well as life insurance, including group term, key-person, split dollar and bonus. We give clients information about golden parachutes and limits on deductibility of remuneration (162(m), and we help clients with option exercise issues and related minimum tax issues.
