Ginny Schubert is cochair of the Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation practice group. While she regularly works with a wide variety of legal issues related to both qualified and nonqualified benefit plans, Ginny has developed a particular specialty in the complex set of laws affecting executive compensation and benefits, and frequently advises employers of all sizes regarding compliance with those laws. In the executive compensation area, the types of arrangements she regularly works with are nonqualified deferred compensation plans, rabbi trusts, executive bonus plans, and equity-based compensation arrangements. Recently, Ginny has been working extensively with Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code and has been advising employers regarding how best to respond to its complex requirements. She also does extensive work with benefit arrangements for tax-exempt employers, such as tax-sheltered annuity (403(b)) plans and 457 plans.
