Leanne Reagan focuses her practice on executive compensation and employee benefits. She advises public and private companies on the design and implementation of qualified and non-qualified retirement and deferred compensation plans, welfare plans, and other employee benefit programs. A significant portion of her practice involves advising clients on all executive compensation, golden parachute and benefit plan considerations arising in the context of mergers, acquisitions, and other corporate events.
Leanne regularly counsels clients on tax laws (including laws governing deferred compensation, golden parachute arrangements and deduction limitation rules). She also advises companies and individual senior executives on the adoption, revision, and negotiation of executive employment, change in control agreements and severance arrangements. Leanne also helps clients maintain compliance with the federal laws and regulations associated with these plans, including ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code, federal health care reform, COBRA, and HIPAA.
Leanne represents public, private and tax-exempt companies as well as executives and boards of directors across many industries, including private equity, hospitality, higher education, real estate, banking, aviation and electronics.
