Mark Ashton, a partner in our Exton, Pennsylvania office, and the editor of the firm’s Pennsylvania Family Law blog, wrote an excellent post on that blog entitled "Stock Option Developments." To read the post, click here.
Stock options have become a large part of executive compensation over the last few decades. Moreover, they have become common additional/incentive compensation even for non executives who work for large public companies. We have had to deal with the issue of options both in terms of the division of them in equitable distribution and as a component of income for determining alimony and child support.
Mark’s post raises interesting food for thought regarding the issue of the re-casting and/or re-pricing of options, post-complaint.
Stay tuned for updates as the law develops regarding this topic.
