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

Latham & Watkins and Semler Brossy Consulting Group 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.


Companies, compensation committees, and boards of directors are now working on their 2020 year-end compensation decisions and designing their 2021 programs. This can be a difficult process in light of SEC changes and regulatory reforms that impact the design and administration of executive compensation programs, and in 2020 and 2021 in particular, as a result of the impact of COVID-19 on company performance and business operations. In addition, compensation-related lawsuits and investor focus on social, governance, and compensation issues have continued to influence executive and director compensation arrangements.
