Executive Employment and Personal Services Agreements

We advise companies and management teams on senior executive employment and compensation arrangements, including for employment, separation, retention, cash incentives, equity incentives (such as stock options, restricted stock, partnership profits and capital interests, and other alternative forms of equity compensation), deferred compensation, golden parachutes, and pension and retirement.
Weil also regularly counsels clients in connection with ERISA, pension investments and fiduciary matters; equity and incentive compensation plans; nonqualified pension plans; and employment, severance, and change-in-control agreements. We frequently appear on behalf of clients before regulatory agencies such as the IRS, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, and Department of Labor.

We also represent well-known high-net-worth individuals, including in personal services agreements.
