Farrer - Employee benefits & share option schemes

Employee benefits & share option schemes

This dynamic team is praised for its diligence, preparation and commerciality.

Chambers & Partners

Employee benefits require a range of legal skills from a number of different practice areas, and we are able to immediately call upon the experience and knowledge of our experts from across the firm. This means that you have all the necessary expertise on hand working together to provide you with everything you need to set in place robust and long-lasting benefit schemes.

The implementation of share option schemes or other incentive plans requires specific knowledge of employment as well as corporate and tax law, and our renowned corporate and tax lawyers work with us to help draft the required documents and implement the relevant schemes.

Advising individuals

As well as working with employers, we also have significant experience advising individuals joining or leaving an employer on their entitlements under any long-term incentive plans in place, including analysis of any relevant post-termination restrictions within the relevant plans.
