Raleigh, New Bern, and Morehead City Attorneys Advise on Executive Compensation Packages

Exceptional legal services help companies and senior-level talent reach agreement

Howard Stallings provides exceptional legal representation to businesses and executives negotiating compensation. Since 1983, our team of highly professional, ethical lawyers has helped Fortune 500 companies and top-level executives negotiate compensation packages. These discussions require patience and fortitude, in addition to detailed knowledge of a company’s profile, the executive’s skill set and current trends in hiring. Our dynamic small firm expends the energy and resources needed to help you pursue the best possible deal. But most important, we make an earnest attempt to build a lasting, mutually beneficial relationship based on integrity.

Knowledge and experience mean power at the negotiating table

Because executive hires might come to fruition only after months of courtship, both sides would like the process to end sweetly instead of bitterly. When compensation negotiations begin, a company doesn’t want to say to the chosen person, “Sorry, you’re not worth what you’re asking.” Nor does the candidate want to sign too hastily and begin a new position by wondering how much money was left on the table. Fortunately, clients who retain Howard Stallings get the benefit of our extensive research and experience. Poring over annual reports and delving deeply into market comparables, we fully prepare to represent your interests in negotiations concerning:

  • Base pay
  • Signing bonus
  • Annual incentives
  • Guaranteed minimums
  • Stock options
  • Restricted stock
  • Low/no-interest loans
  • Relocation costs
  • Supplemental executive medical insurance
  • Supplemental executive life insurance
  • Nonqualified deferred compensation plan
  • Supplemental executive retirement plan (SERP)
  • Club memberships
  • Air travel
  • Financial/tax/estate planning services
  • Legal services
  • Company car
  • College tuition for children
  • Tax gross-up benefits
  • Severance package

But perhaps the most important asset we bring to the negotiations is our reputation for ethics and professionalism. Though we are determined to serve our clients’ best interests, we also use the negotiation process to build goodwill for the working relationship to follow.
