Employee Benefits and Compensation

We are looking for a UK qualified Share Incentive lawyer to join the London office to work with the existing UK Share Incentive partner. You will gain excellent experience and exposure to clients, with opportunities for progression. You will advise the firm’s clients on share option and employee incentive arrangements while supporting the London corporate team in relation to investments, M&A and IPOs. With a focus on UK/US advisory work, you will work regularly with members of the firm’s wider U.S. Employee Benefits and Compensation (EB&C) team on mutual clients as well as with corporate teams across the firm on both advisory work and cross border financings, M&As and other exits. We want to hear from you if you spent a majority of your 2-5 years PQE on employee share incentives and have a technical understanding and knowledge of incentive arrangements for private companies, with a particular emphasis on EMI arrangements, non-qualified plans, CSOP and growth shares. Ideally, you be commercially minded and solution driven with the ability to clearly explain and advise on complex issues.
