Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison has landed former Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz executive compensation partner Andrea Wahlquist Brown for that same practice in its New York office.

“Executive compensation and employee benefits issues are some of the most challenging and sensitive aspects in a deal, requiring not just technical sophistication, but an ability to communicate with and understand the needs of key stakeholders – all of which Andrea has in abundance,” Jean McLoughlin, co-chair of Paul Weiss’s executive compensation group, said via email.
