Equilar Compensation Committee Forum

San Francisco
14 Nov 2017
Shearman & Sterling partner Doreen Lilienfeld (New York-Compensation, Governance & ERISA) spoke at Equilar’s Compensation Committee Forum on November 14, 2017 in San Francisco. Doreen participated in a panel titled “Avoiding the Front-Page News: Exploring Reputational Risks of CEO Termination Pay” and spoke about executive severance arrangements and related considerations, including triggers, incentive treatments, benefits and clawbacks, as well as debate the use of golden parachutes.

The goal of the Forum is to help compensation committees, and the members of management who work closely with them, establish and execute a compensation and benefits program that meets both management’s and investors’ expectations. Participants attending the Forum gained valuable insights to make the best pay decisions and establish strong governance practices that will drive strategic and defendable compensation decisions.

Topic highlights included:

• Regulatory updates impacting executive pay
• Investor scrutiny on pay for performance practices
• Using peer groups to align pay levels
• Goal-setting and incentive metric selection
• CEO termination pay – staying out of the front page headlines
• Compensation disclosure
• Effective shareholder engagement
