Our professionals can play an integral role in negotiating the equity, stock option, or restricted stock portion of your employment or consulting contract, helping you to decide whether Restricted Stock, Incentive or Non-Qualified Stock Options, Phantom Stock, or Deferred Compensation is the best fit for your personal situation.

Stock Option and Restricted Stock Advice

We analyze all the “what-if” scenarios for exercising your options, including reverse vesting, filing an 83(b) election for restricted stock, transferring the stock or options to other family members, or receiving a profits interest from a Limited Liability Company.
