Our core team also works as appropriate with colleagues in other specialist areas, to provide a comprehensive and seamless service:

  • As part of the wider Tax team, we are well placed to provide advice on the tax issues for individuals and companies in connection with share incentives and equity investment by employees and directors.
  • We work together with our colleagues in Corporate to provide advice on incentives in the context of transactions, setting up new businesses and restructuring and to help companies with relevant corporate governance and financial services regulation considerations.
  • Working closely with our colleagues in Employment and Pensions, we also advise clients on the wider aspects of an employment relationship including structuring an attractive package to attract high fliers, helping companies with issues arising from their expatriate workforce and dealing with the tax issues on termination of employment.
  • Accounting and Financial Aspects

We act for a broad range of listed companies on share incentive and remuneration planning, including innovative long-term incentive plans, all-employee share plans and employee trusts and worldwide incentive plans for multinational companies.  At the other end of the scale, we advise private and venture capital-backed companies on appropriate employee ownership structures which suit their commercial requirements.  We also advise other professionals on share plans matters.  Click to read more about our Recent experience.
