The same can be said of in-house counsel responsible for advising their employer or compensation committee on executive hiring, retention or termination matters. There are myriad issues beyond the requirements of compensation reporting to consider, from negotiating the employment relationship to understanding compensation packages, to considering executive's mid-employment requests, to terminating the employment relationship, whether due to performance or merger.
