Ken Raskin is a partner and Chair of King & Spalding’s Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation Practice and is resident in the New York office. His practice concentrates in executive compensation and employee benefits law. He counsels clients in the creation, structure and communication of tax-qualified retirement plans and welfare benefit plans, assisting clients in maintaining IRS and ERISA compliance and in negotiating the resolution of qualification problems under the IRS’ and DOL’s compliance resolution programs. He also assists clients in establishing and maintaining non-qualified plans of deferred compensation (e.g., “top-hat plans” and “ERISA-excess plans”) and in developing funding mechanisms for these plans such as “rabbi trusts.” He advises plan trustees, bank trust departments and other fiduciaries regarding ERISA and its investment requirements, and fiduciary issues and responsibilities. He provides transactional counsel in mergers and acquisitions regarding financings, takeover defenses and a variety of other transactions.

Mr. Raskin advises both corporate and individual clients on executive compensation issues. He provides counsel in the design and negotiation of executive employment contracts, incentive compensation arrangements, stock option plans, non-compete agreements, severance arrangements and parachute plans. He also counsels investment fund sponsors, investing plans and lenders on the fiduciary and other implications of ERISA’s “plan assets” regulation.

Mr. Raskin is nationally recognized for his expertise by Chambers USA, Best Lawyers in America, PLC Which Lawyer? and the Legal 500.  He is a frequent speaker and author, and he is often quoted in industry publications such as The Deal, Metropolitan Corporate Counsel, BNA Corporate Accountability Report, and Dow Jones International News.
