9:15 - 10:30 am - Session 3 The Hide and Seek of Executive Compensation: Finding the Promises, Obtaining the Payments, Avoiding the Penalties and Pitfalls
Executive compensation plans can be difficult to decipher to determine the amount of the compensation, and the alternatives for dividing the compensation in a divorce. Special rules sometimes apply that can result in confiscatory taxes if the compensation is paid out too early. Presenters will discuss the complex forms of executive compensation; valuation of executive compensation and alternative solutions; negotiating pitfalls and how to avoid the assessment of the penalties.

Three top divorce lawyers and three top CPAs, all of whom happen to be women, discuss gender bias and how women can level the playing field in the courtroom, establish credibility, stop being their own worst enemy, and much more. If you are a woman and want to improve your skill as an expert witness, or an attorney who wants to know how to successfully work with female experts, in and out of court, you must attend this session.
