Taken from the briefing Clawbacks: Lessons (to be) Learned recorded May, 2017 in New York.

Clawbacks are back in the news. Focus on executive compensation practices continues to sharpen and few aspects have attracted more attention than clawbacks. However, a clawback policy is an instrument that must be understood properly in order to be used effectively. Moreover, as the responsibility for enforcement of executive compensation clawbacks will lie in the hands of boards and compensation committees, they have to be prepared to exercise their authority appropriately. Questions regarding intent, design and implementation should all be considered in light of a company’s particular circumstances when developing a clawback policy. Importantly, however, consideration should also be given to the most probable questions that will arise when a company is faced with a clawback decision.
