Brought to you in partnership with WebCredenza
These telephone seminars are presented by national speakers who are experts in their areas of practice often ABA Section chairs, authors of books in their areas of practice, and heads of practice groups.

Companies of every type – C Corps, S Corps, LLCs or partnerships –provide employees incentive compensation packages to employees.  The types of incentive plans available to these companies depend on the type of entity involved but are generally extensive. Corporate entities have stock options, restricted stock and other forms of profit or capital appreciation rights. LLCs are even more flexible and can award a variety of forms of profit or capital rights. These alternatives, together with voting and vesting restrictions, provide companies alternatives for virtually every circumstance. But each alternative comes with tradeoffs – practical, tax and financial. This program will provide you with a real world guide to the incentive compensation alternatives to C and S corporations, LLCs and partnerships.
