capitalizing on opportunities

Lerch Early represents business owners in designing and preparing incentive compensation arrangements for their key executives. Every compensation and incentive plan begins with consideration of an owner’s short- and long-term expectations for the executive. How the plan motivates and rewards people is critical to its ultimate success.

Key tools can include restricted stock sales, or qualified or non-qualified stock options. Alternatively, we may recommend stock appreciation rights agreements or bonus plans where owners want key executives to share in the upside of long-term value creation, but not to hold any ownership interest in the company.
