Crescent Moran Chasteen is a partner in Goodwin’s ERISA and Executive Compensation practice. She focuses on advising public and private companies, executives and boards on the regulatory complexities of executive compensation and benefits, including tax laws governing deferred compensation, equity compensation, golden parachute arrangements, and deduction limitation rules; securities laws including reporting and disclosure requirements, shareholder approval requirements and registration issues; and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).

Ms. Chasteen has broad experience advising public companies, boards, private equity clients, and members of management on executive compensation and benefits issues arising in the context of mergers and acquisitions, spin-offs, initial public offerings, and restructurings. She frequently counsels both purchasers and sellers in such transactions with respect to the potential impact of “golden parachute” payments (including the excise tax on excess parachute payments), permissible treatment of employee stock options, and structure of retention and deal bonus arrangements. In addition, she counsels clients on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules governing executive compensation disclosure, corporate governance matters, and periodic reporting requirements, and counsels large public companies and individual senior executives on the adoption, revision, and negotiation of executive employment and severance agreements, as well as litigation and controversies involving executive compensation.

Prior to joining Goodwin, Ms. Chasteen was a partner at Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP. She has also practiced executive compensation and employee benefits law at multinational law firms in Boston and Washington, D.C.
