Executive Compensation Cases And Clawback Provisions
Our firm also handles litigation involving executive compensation. Many recent executive compensation cases involve “clawback” provisions, where an organization is fighting to claw back bonuses, stock options, and other compensation that its executives received once additional facts have come to light, such as an accounting restatement or losses from bad trades.
Based on recent trends (such as Section 954 of the Dodd-Frank law), we expect clawback provisions to be increasingly written into employment contracts, and for additional litigation to result. If you need the legal advice and representation of a skilled employment litigation attorney, we invite you to schedule a consultation at our firm.
