However, balancing the need to attract and retain the best talent against shareholder concerns around value can be difficult.
Our incentives and remuneration team, led by Partner Mahesh Varia, understands this and can help you put executive remuneration plans in place that both incentivise participants and meet shareholder expectations.
We advise a wide range of clients from private equity-backed businesses to companies listed on the UK and international stock exchanges including multinational groups. As well as helping clients introduce executive incentive plans (such as performance share plans, restricted stock awards and tax-advantaged enterprise management incentives) our team has also advised clients on:
- establishing deferred bonus arrangements
- shareholding guidelines for executives
- cash-based incentive plans.
The team guides clients through the applicable law, rules, codes and guidance to produce an arrangement that best suits their needs. We know the importance of a well-designed and clearly communicated remuneration package in motivating executives to achieve sustainable business growth.
We are ranked as a tier 1 practice in The Legal 500 2020.
