United States > Labor and employment > Employee benefits, executive compensation and retirement plans: transactional

A proactive expansion strategy has brought a number of key additions to Goodwin’s employee benefits and executive compensation practice. Previously of Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP, Silicone Valley-based Patrick Menasco has reinforced the team’s ERISA fiduciary and prohibited transaction knowledge, while New York-based Andrew Barton – recently acquired from Kirkland & Ellis LLP – adds strength to cash and equity-based compensation negotiations in mid-cap private equity transactions. Silicone Valley-based practice head Lynda Galligan and associate Monica Patel have a strong portfolio of technology and life sciences clients, having recently advised on high-profile IPOs in the biotechnology and ride-hailing sectors. Practice head Scott Webster, Natascha George and James Mattus are leading names in the Boston office, with particular strength in advising REITs, financial services companies and clients in the software sector.
