Executive compensation

Organizations exempt from federal income taxation under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code must establish that the compensation paid to their senior executives is reasonable. We work with boards of directors and compensation committees to review reports prepared by compensation consultants. We provide counsel with respect to establishing a rebuttable presumption that the compensation paid to executives is reasonable. Additionally, we assist in the documentation of the deliberations of the committees and board in reaching the final decisions on executive compensation.
