Legal advice for implementing share plans and employee incentives

Our corporate lawyers advise on a wide range of short term and long term, HMRC approved and unapproved, employee incentive plans with a particular focus on EMI share schemes and Company Share Option Plans.

We also advise on:

  • growth share schemes
  • phantom share option schemes
  • bonus arrangements

How we help with your share plans and incentives

As part of the implementation strategy, our lawyers will advise on any changes that may be required to constitutional documents and offer guidance on the different incentive schemes available so as to structure a scheme suitable for your company, whether with time and performance triggers or, in the context of a capital growth business plan, exit only triggers.

We work closely and collaboratively with clients’ tax advisers in relation to any advance clearances or post completion reporting requirements so as to ensure an effective and compliant scheme or plan.
