Bill Asher, co-chair of Choate's Business & Technology Group, and Fred Callori, partner in private equity, wrote “Anticipating New Exec Compensation, Disclosure Rules” for Law360. The article discusses upcoming SEC changes to proxy statement disclosure that will affect public companies’ compensation and governance practices and policies, including the relationship between compensation incentives and corporate risk, the qualifications of company directors, a justification of board leadership structure and company relationships with compensation consultants. The new rules are part of the widespread scrutiny of corporate compensation and governance practices in the wake of the financial crisis.
