Εxecutive remuneration encompasses a diverse range of practices and is consequently influenced by many different areas of the law including tax, employment, securities and other aspects of corporate law. Its intention is to provide readers with an overview of these areas of law as they relate to the field of executive remuneration.

The most fundamental considerations relating to executive remuneration are often tax-related.
