Designing and Administering Executive and Director Compensation in Today's Challenging Environment

Latham and Semler Brossy join together to discuss Important considerations in planning for 2021 year-end pay decisions and 2022 pay plan design and proxy disclosures. MCLE credit offered.


2021 has left companies, compensation committees, and boards of directors with various questions and challenges relating to their compensation planning and decisions. The COVID-19 pandemic made a significant impact on companies in a variety of stages and industries, and created a new paradigm with new regulations, procedures, and standards across the board.

This year has seen new regulatory reforms implemented by the SEC that impact the design and administration of executive compensation programs. In addition, talent acquisition challenges have become more common, and DEI and environmental, social, governance issues have continued to influence executive and director compensation arrangements. SPACs also continued to play a huge role in the market.

In this webcast, Latham & Watkins and Semler Brossy Consulting Group examine these, and other vital topics impacting the current environment.


  • Closing out 2021: goal setting and design in the midst of continued uncertainty, tax management, and moonshot awards

  • Talent challenges and incentives: ESG and human capital management and war for talent
  • For the 2022 season: disclosures, clawbacks, and stock ownership guideline
