Share schemes and equity incentives are a vital tool for public or private entities in attracting, retaining and motivating employees. Using our market-leading experience our experts guide clients through the establishment, implementation and operation of their schemes, including tax and securities law issues.
Our expertise also extends to advising boards and remuneration committees of listed companies on applicable corporate governance codes, best practices and institutional investors’ and proxy solicitors’ expectations when devising, implementing or amending share schemes and incentive plans.
We regularly advise on the impact of M&A, restructurings, IPOs, privatisations and other corporate transactions on the operation of existing share incentive plans. Our team also advises clients on devising and implementing new incentive plans for use following completion of a corporate transition.
