In today’s hyper-mobile marketplace, competition for talent is fierce—and the ability to attract and retain elite talent can be the difference between success and failure in deal-making, strategic initiatives, and long-term viability. O’Melveny’s Executive Compensation & Employee Benefits team works with clients, from early-stage start-ups to private equity firms to multi-billion dollar global brands craft and deploy plans that appropriately reward and incent key talent and support long-term corporate growth.
The depth and diversity of our experience, combined with our commercial approach, ensure that our clients’ objectives are met with optimized compensation arrangements and incentive plans that are both “market” and tax and securities law-compliant. And our highly tailored work has enabled high-profile activity, from securing executive buy-in for transformative transactions to finding novel solutions to sensitive boardroom-level personnel issues.
We pride ourselves on our one-stop offering, with the ability to deliver integrated insights spanning executive compensation-related securities laws and disclosure requirements; Section 409A, Section 280G, Section 162(m), and other tax rules impacting executive compensation arrangements; and fiduciary-responsibility provisions of ERISA relating to investment of pension plan assets.
“Well-regarded handling of tax, securities and corporate matters as they intersect with executive compensation and employee benefits arrangements.”
The team is praised for the “depth of resources, quality people, efficiency and overall solid legal support.”
