Webcast: Designing and Administering Executive and Director Compensation in Today's Uncertain Environment

Important Considerations in Planning for 2017 Year-End Pay Decisions and 2018 Pay Plan Design and Proxy Disclosures


Companies, Compensation Committees and Boards of Directors are now working on their 2017 year-end compensation decisions and designing their 2018 programs. This can be a difficult process in light of the 2016 election results and the continuing uncertainty regarding lawmaking and regulatory changes affecting executive compensation. Potential tax reform, SEC changes and legislative proposals could all have a dramatic impact on how executive compensation programs are designed and administered, but the legal and regulatory picture is still not clear.

The Latham & Watkins Benefits & Compensation Group and Semler Brossy Consulting Group will present a practical discussion of the forces at work in the current environment and the critical questions that companies and their advisors should now be considering in order to best navigate these choppy seas.


  • Lessons learned from 2017 proxy season: Say-on-pay and say-on-frequency votes
  • Shareholder engagement on compensation matters in today’s uncertain environment
  • Long-termism vs. short-termism: The impact of investor concerns and business strategy on compensation design
  • CEO pay ratio disclosure: Implementation, disclosure, and consequences
  • Clawbacks and risk reviews: What companies should be considering now
  • Executive compensation in the forces that are still not settled
