Incentives, remuneration and benefits

How you choose to reward your people will be driven by your business objectives.  Our specialist employee incentives team can help you identify the best way to deliver the behaviours you need to meet your goals, and at the same time maximise the position of your employees and executives.

Attracting the best people is vital to the success of any business, but the labour market is increasingly mobile and competitive.  To offer the sort of incentives that attract and retain them, you need advice that is responsive to changes in legislation and market conditions.  We work closely with our international colleagues across Osborne Clarke (and our best friends network), so we are able to advise wherever your employees are based.

From tax-advantaged all-employee plans to bespoke discretionary arrangements for your senior executives, we advise a wide range of companies on their incentive plans, including small starts-ups, PE backed companies, listed companies and global companies.  We advise the remuneration committees of listed companies, and also help businesses with employee benefit trusts, tax withholding, corporate governance, regulatory and compliance matters.

We are well-versed in advising clients on the impact that corporate transactions have on incentive arrangements and making the process as smooth as possible.
