Presented by: Strafford
Counsel to companies preparing for an IPO face significant compensation-related issues. The approach in executive compensation design for a public company is different from a private company. Executive compensation in public companies is highly scrutinized and must adhere to various legal standards to avoid any shareholder disputes and litigation. Partner Chris Earnest spoke on a panel during this webinar that discussed long-term incentive plan design, shareholder considerations, IPO equity awards, change-in-control, severance, board compensation, and other key executive compensation considerations for pre-IPO companies.
