Lilienfeld Quoted on Say on Pay in Corporate Board Member

New York partner Doreen Lilienfeld (New York-Compensation, Governance & ERISA) was quoted in an article published in the First Quarter 2015 issue of Corporate Board Member.

The article, titled “Executive Compensation: Whatever Happened to 31 Flavors,” notes that say-on-pay votes have now become commonplace and have helped create a greater focus on ensuring solid compensation plans. Concurring with this view, Lilienfeld commented, “Say on pay has really made companies thoughtful about what they’re doing, what their approach is, and how they are paying for performance. It is a good thing from a governance perspective, from an issuer perspective, from a retention perspective.”
