The executive compensation practice at Alston & Bird is one of the country’s preeminent groups of lawyers who focus solely on executive compensation matters. Unlike many firms, where employee benefits generalists may spend a portion of their time on executive compensation matters, the executive compensation lawyers at Alston & Bird are “full-time” executive compensation lawyers who focus on the tax, securities and corporate governance laws and regulations that have a direct effect on executive compensation for public, private and multinational companies.

Executive pay has soared into public focus in recent years, creating a lightning rod for sweeping legislative and cultural reforms. With these reforms comes an entirely new and continually evolving regulatory environment: The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (EESA) and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, regulation of deferred compensation under IRC Section 409A, changes to the accounting regime for stock-based compensation and evolving proxy disclosure rules for executive compensation and related party transactions are only a handful of challenges facing public companies on a daily basis. Our compensation team stays up-to-the-minute on fast-breaking issues and makes sure our clients are among the first to know of and understand how new developments affect them.
