How can we help?
Employment, tax and corporate law as well as commercial aspects must be taken into account when deciding on the most suitable remuneration package.
We have expert knowledge of employment, tax and corporate law and of compensation and benefits packages provided to management and key employees in companies that are bought or sold by private equity funds.
Sign-on bonuses, incentive schemes and other performance-related remuneration are expected by company executives and key employees. Striking the right balance between incentivising employees and accommodating the needs of the company and its shareholders can be challenging.
In the aftermath of the financial crisis, excessive compensation packages for executives have been much discussed at annual meetings and particularly in the media.
Moreover, complicated rules, which have not been fully clarified yet, have been introduced regulating remuneration packages for board members, executives and “risk takers” in the financial sector.
