Share Schemes & Incentives

We recognise that incentivising and retaining key employees is vital for any business and regularly advise a broad range of businesses and employees on all aspects of employee share schemes and incentives including EMI and “phantom” option plans.  

Our approach is to work closely with each organisation, understanding the legal requirements of their business to assist clients in the implementation of share schemes most suited to them. We can guide our clients through the documentation to implement these schemes and ensure that it does not conflict with the company’s articles of association. We can assist by drafting and adjusting share option documentation tailored to suit our client’s needs and help with the administrative burden associated with the granting and later exercise of these options by employees.

Alongside our experienced Employment team we work with employers and employees to draft bonus schemes from initial design through to development of the scheme.

For further information on how we can help your business with share schemes and incentives, call one of our Corporate Team.
