Executives, employees and board members must resolve the conflicts of interest issues inherent in the area of executive compensation and benefits according to common law rules and good judgment.  However, inside and outside counsel advising the executives, employees and board members must adhere to strict ethical codes.

This presentation will discuss how counsel should handle the inherent conflict of designing and drafting plans and agreements under the supervision of executives who will benefit from those plans and agreements?

This presentation will discuss:

  • Conflicts and privilege issues

  • The role of inside counsel

  • The role of the Compensation Committee

  • Dodd-Frank Act Sec. 952(b) relating to independent legal counsel

  • How does counsel reconcile its ethical duties to clients with the whistleblower provisions of Dodd-Frank and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act
