One week ago, on March 27, 2017, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on “Negotiating Key Terms in Your Next Executive Job Offer.”
When you receive, a job offer letter, how do you evaluate it? Do you accept the terms “as is” or do you negotiate? You do a great job negotiating deals for your company but do you always do as well when representing yourself?
This article explores the situations in which you negotiate the employment job offer, the terms you should focus on and their ramifications, and how an executive employment attorney can help you.
Often CEO and senior executive recruits have considerable bargaining power. The employer wants and needs you. You may never be in a better position to negotiate further than you are at the moment of the job offer.
Assuming you get the salary and target bonus you are looking, there is still an awful lot on the table. Many of these items may be far more important than salary, including these key items fully discussed in my article:
Sometimes just a word here or there, or an extra clause added by a skilled attorney can make an enormous change for you in realizing the benefit of your bargain or enabling you to leave a difficult situation you did not anticipate.
My article on this subject was published March 27, 2017 by CEOWorld magazine.

One week ago, on February 28, 2017, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on “The Advantage of RSUs in Your CEO Compensation Package.”
For CEOs, C-Suite executives and other senior level executives, equity compensation is a key part and often the most important part of their compensation package. For many senior executives, equity means stock options or restricted stock. But in many circumstances the better choice is RSUs, restricted stock units.
RSUs are most useful in mature companies where the CEO or C-suite executive takes a position where stock has considerable value, but growth is still expected in the public company or perhaps an IPO or liquidity event is not far off. In that circumstance, the key advantages of RSUs is that taxation would be put off until vesting has occurred and the company would typically pay for or assist in payment of the taxation that would arise, and is willing to do so because vesting has already occurred.RSUs are even more valuable to the CEO or senior executive when he or she takes over in a turnaround situation in a mature company where there is no assurance of appreciation and the CEO needs assurance of a floor in his or her equity value. RSUs also offer a clear advantage over stock options to CEOs and C-Suite executives because RSUs after vesting always retain some value. RSUs effectively have a floor on value. They can never go underwater and become worthless as often happens with stock options.

The terms of the RSUs may be set out in the employment agreement or a separate grant agreement. Either way, the CEO or C-suite executive needs to be aware of a number of important terms to be reviewed and negotiated in RSU agreements. With RSUs, as with restricted stock and options, bonus, severance and other key areas of the executive’s employment agreement, it is important to retain trained tax and executive employment counsel.
