Non-Qualified Retirement Plans
Our attorneys have significant experience advising on the sophisticated compensation and benefit issues that affect senior executives, management employees and non-employee directors. Franczek benefits attorneys negotiate employment and separation agreements for employers and senior executives. Our attorneys design and implement annual and long-term bonus plans and counsel employers on using them to recruit and retain executive and management employees. Our attorneys are skilled at crafting §409A compliant deferred compensation arrangements, including supplemental executive retirement plans, such as excess benefit plans that supplement tax-qualified plans and "top-hat" plans, as well as "rabbi" trusts and other funding arrangements for these plans. Our attorneys also design and implement equity compensation arrangements, including restricted stock, stock option, stock purchase, stock appreciation, and various phantom stock plans.
