Bachelder Conference Room

The Bachelder Firm is retained in matters involving a wide variety of public and closely-held corporations in the United States and abroad, often negotiating compensation packages for new chief executives, chief operating officers and other senior level executives. Frequently, the firm conducts complex negotiations on behalf of entire senior management.

Individual clients are usually executives, or other highly-compensated individuals, who are commencing employment or leaving positions, or whose compensation is changing significantly.

In some cases, representation originates from the reorganization or restructuring of corporations. These may include mergers and acquisitions as well as spin-offs. The firm has wide experience structuring contingency compensation arrangements in the event of takeovers; advising management on compensation arrangements within new corporate environments; counseling corporate officers and directors in circumstances involving potential conflicts of interest and personal liability; and representing the employment and investment interests of management participants during leveraged buyouts.
