Short Case Study #2

He assisted a well-established law firm representing a publicly-traded client engaged in a $1 Billion + corporate transaction. As the firm has no one on staff who is capable of handling executive compensation issues, Mr. Fields assisted the firm by (i) negotiating and drafting the terms, representations and warranties of the related Letter of Intent and Merger Agreement, (ii) performing executive compensation due diligence on behalf of the client, (iii) advising on related tax matters, (iv) handling the assumption of the seller’s outstanding stock options, RSUs and Section 409A deferred compensation plans, (v) drafting replacement executive employment contracts, retention bonus agreements and equity and non-equity based performance incentive plans and agreements and (vi) drafting the executive compensation provisions of the joint proxy statement.
