Reston Executive Compensation Attorney

Executive Employment Agreements & Severance Arrangements Nationwide

The attorneys at Zell Law assist corporate executives in negotiating executive employment agreements and severance arrangements. We also structure numerous equity incentive plans, stock option plans, stock appreciation rights plans, phantom stock plans, performance share awards, restricted stock grants, employee stock option plans (ESOPs), and other long-term incentive compensation arrangements for executives of both publicly traded and privately held companies.

The compliance challenges created by Code Section 409A, ERISA and other laws affecting compensation make this a particularly challenging area of business, and it’s important to have legal guidance in these matters.
