Executive Compensation & Benefits

The Executive Compensation and Benefits group is seeking a mid-level associate (class of 2015-2018) with experience practicing Executive Compensation & Benefits in a major law firm, with a significant portion of that experience being in a context of private equity transactions. High level of academic achievement and solid law firm experience a must.

The Executive Compensation and Benefits practice at Skadden advises public and private companies, management, boards of directors and executives on a full range of matters relating to employee compensation plans and arrangements, including issues arising in the areas of the transactional, tax, securities, bankruptcy, corporate governance and ERISA claims.

These efforts, along with our professional development and other Skadden benefits, including flexible schedules with work from home options, underscores Skadden's long-standing commitment to investing in its people, culture and diversity.
