Practical Law Company to Host Free Webinar With Skadden and Morgan Lewis Addressing Section 409A Pitfalls

Registration Open for June 13, 2012 Webinar for Attorneys

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 5, 2012) - To help lawyers get up to speed on the legal and practical issues involved when applying Section 409A's regulations on nonqualified deferred compensation, Practical Law Company (PLC), a provider of practical legal know-how to law firms, law departments and law schools, will host a free webinar, "Section 409A: Expert Advice on Avoiding Common Pitfalls" on June 13, 2012 at 1:00PM ET (10:00AM PT). The 90-minute webinar will provide advice from leading experts on avoiding Section 409A violations and correcting common Section 409A compliance mistakes.

During the presentation, Jessica Cherry, an attorney editor with PLC's Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation service, will moderate a discussion with Regina Olshan, a partner at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and Daniel L. Hogans, a partner at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP. The panelists will discuss how to identify compensation arrangements subject to Section 409A, the requirements for supplemental executive retirement plans (SERPS) linked to tax-qualified plans, payment types for stock right awards, "good reason" termination provisions in employment agreements, avoiding impermissible severance toggles, considerations applicable to payments conditioned on execution and non-revocation of a release and more.

"Section 409A's regulations are complex and there continues to be uncertainty when applying the rules to particular situations," explained Cherry. "Our speakers are two of the leading experts on this topic, and we are very fortunate to have them share their insights with us during this webinar."
