Michelle Capezza, Member of the Firm in the Employee Benefits and Health Care & Life Sciences practices, in the firm’s New York office, authored an article in Lexis Practice Advisor, titled “Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Attorney’s Role in Corporate Transactions.”
Following is an excerpt (see below to download the full version in PDF format):
A corporate transaction often requires employee benefits and executive compensation (EBEC) attorneys to utilize all aspects of their knowledge in the field in order to review the transaction parties’ current arrangements, assess and address explicit and potential liabilities, and advise on program structures post-transaction. The goal of this practice note is to assist EBEC attorneys in their approach to a corporate transaction and reference common issues that may arise, which will require their competencies. It may also assist attorneys from other practice areas to identify employee benefits and executive compensation issues in a transaction and the appropriate time to engage further review by an EBEC practitioner who specializes in these issues.
