Today's international landscape impacting compensation includes global equity compensation packages being offered in a variety of international jurisdictions that can pose significant risks to organizations that may not fully understand the legal and taxation nuances posed by use of various stock and equity awards. Compensation Committees along with management need to be armed with the appropriate information to make such critical decisions to limit their exposure and ensure their compensation structures align both risk and intended rewards.  

Join BDO and DLA Piper for a dynamic conversation on these issues and sharing of tools to help shape conversations at the board level in evaluating the appropriate mix of equity arrangements and awards.
