Compensation Committee Guide

​The Compensation Committee Guide by Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz describes the responsibilities of compensation committee members and provides information and practices to enable compensation committees to function effectively.

Given the continuing focus by shareholders and directors on the role of compensation committees and corporations’ compensation programs, this guide provides information on:

  • Composition and meetings
  • Charters 
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Legal standards and regulations that govern compensation committees and their members

Detailed guidance is also provided around many other topics to promote compensation committee effectiveness.
