Nyron J. Persaud


I enjoy solving puzzles and finding practical solutions to complex problems.

Nyron is a founding partner of Cooley’s Chicago office. He represents clients on employee benefits and executive compensation-related aspects of complex corporate transactions. In addition, companies of all stages, from emerging companies to large public companies, turn to him for support with designing, negotiating and implementing executive compensation arrangements, including employment, severance and change-in-control agreements, equity-based compensation plans, phantom and cash incentive arrangements and nonqualified deferred compensation plans. He also assists clients with executive compensation disclosure matters, including in connection with initial public offerings, proxy and other periodic reporting obligations and transaction-related filings.
