Jeremy Goldstein and Associates LLC
Jeremy Goldstein is a partner at Jeremy Goldstein and Associates LLC who graduated from the New York University School of Law.
He is working on companies that have stopped providing stock options for employees. If stock options are the only form of compensation from companies, employees know economic downturns can render stock worthless.
Jeremy Goldstein is working toward higher salaries that an employer would pay rather than stock options. Jeremy Goldstein comments that this sort of compensation can be preferable to additional wages or better insurance. Stock only helps an employee’s earnings if the corporation’s share increases.
Jeremy Goldstein is working on changes to pay structures in corporations. When an employee has stock in a company, it makes them a shareholder.
To engage shareholders, a company has to be able to trust them. Sometimes this is hard to do. Shareholders occasionally need to get in touch with company representatives.
He believes that many companies do shareholder outreach every year via management. Mr. Goldstein has been involved in many large corporate transactions such as Goodrich acquisition by United Technologies.
He is a member of the American Bar Association Business Section and is chair of the Mergers & Acquisition Subcommittee of the Executive Compensation Committee. He writes frequently on corporate governance. Learn more about Jeremy Goldstein: http://officialjeremygoldstein.com/published-works/ and http://officialjeremygoldstein.com/philanthropy/
He feels strongly that you cannot eliminate benefits like shares of stock because the price plunges for a few hours or days. A solution to this problem is called a knockout where stock options have time limits, which employees lose if the share falls under a certain amount.
