In 2014, attorney Jeremy Goldstein founded the private law firm of Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC. His concentration is on executive pay and corporate governance issues. Mr. Goldstein is outstanding in his field because of the recent issue of corporations choosing not to provide its employees with stock options.
The purpose of this type of financial compensation movement is based around negative finances and other issues. Even though stock options for employees is still more preferable than giving higher wages, better insurance coverage, or providing more equities, it still gives employees better value options.
Some concerns that prompts corporations to remove employee stock options is that if the stocks do well, the company and employee earnings are a win-win. However, if stocks plunge, then just the opposite occurs. Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates touts a new type of compensation protective barrier option called “knockout.” Knockout means that if employee share values falls under a specific amount, they remain protective.
Knockout options are not a panacea, but they diminish many of the biggest obstacles associated with stock-based compensation. When businesses offer knockout benefits, company investors have fewer concerns about their abbreviating ownership shares. At the end of the year when executive compensation reports are disclosed, the proxy reports then reflect truer earnings which is more favorable to the shareholders.
In addition to financial compensation issues, Attorney Jeremy Goldstein continues to play important roles in corporate transactions with preeminent companies including AT&T, Bank One, Verizon, Merck, Chevron, Duke Energy, and the Miller Brewing Company. He is recognized by associations like The Legal 500 and Chambers USA Guide Leading Lawyers for Business as a leading executive compensation attorney.
