GACPTM and LPIMTM – L&A’s Proprietary Methodology for Proven Results

L&A utilizes its proprietary methods – GACPTM (Generally Accepted Compensation Principles) and LPIM™ (Longnecker Percentile Identification Matrix) – to determine reasonable compensation levels that are accurate and defensible in the courtroom and during IRS audits. This methodology identifies an incumbent’s market percentile base salary, incentives targets and total direct compensation which is then used to determine the maximum applicable R&D tax credit value for the year assessed, providing our clients with an opportunity to maximize tax deductions while mitigating litigation and audit risk.

Past legal engagements we’ve provided expert testimony, expert reports, expert analyses, or IRS audit review and support for include, but are not limited to:

  • Enron Corporation – Egregious compensation practices
  • Haggar Clothing Co. – Reasonable compensation
  • Argo International – Shareholder oppression
  • ACS – Reasonable compensation
  • Ace Cash Express – Employment agreement/Golden parachute »
  • TXU Energy – Compensation practices
