Executive Pay Planning

Negotiating and structuring mutually beneficial compensation packages

An executive’s compensation agreement can be vital to ensuring the health of your organization. Unfortunately, executive compensation agreements almost always represent a complicated transaction. Our lawyers know the ins and outs of executive compensation agreements and can add value to your business by helping to align company and  executive interests. We represent both companies and executives in the process of structuring compensation plans.

Retaining iVLG to Represent Your Company
Research has proven that executives are in a superior position, and receive higher compensation, when they are negotiating directly with employees of the company. These employees (in-house counsel) will soon be the subordinates of the executives, and this may create a conflict in negotiating such deals. Our firm has no such conflict. We will advocate for your rights to ensure your objectives are met.

Company and executive interests should be properly aligned to provide powerful incentives for every executive to perform to the best of their ability. We carefully structure compensation agreements to create such alignment, for both the short term and long term. By thoughtfully tying each executive’s compensation to his or her performance, our attorneys help ensure both companies and their executives benefit from the employment relationship.
