Executive Compensation

The Challenge

Ensuring the chief executive officer of a successful startup received the equity compensation he was promised.

The Engagement

A successful startup was sold for nine figures to a Fortune 500 company. The former CEO of the company, a graduate of the the Stanford Business School, retained us to secure the equity compensation he had been promised by the founder. When the trial court wrongfully dismissed the suit, Brendan Maher successfully obtained reversal in the New York appellate courts. After discovery commenced, the case settled shortly after Peter Stris deposed the founder.

The Result

Confidential settlement in favor of our client.
