Employee share schemes

Within: Employee share schemes

Slaughter and May bolstered its employee share schemes team in 2018 by hiring Ian Brown as a senior counsel from Deloitte LLP. The group advises on the full range of executive remuneration and employee share scheme issues, including the establishment, operation and amendment of employee incentive plans. It also assists clients with managing the operation and amendment of their directors’ remuneration policies. The team is also noted for advising clients on reviewing their policies and procedures in the light of a new requirement for executive directors to retain a level of shareholding post-termination. In addition to providing advice on a standalone basis, practitioners handle the employee incentives aspects of a broad range of major transactions, including public takeovers, IPOs (main market and AIM), secondary capital raisings, demergers, private M&A and other corporate transactions. Phil Linnard, Padraig Cronin and associate Rosemary Nelson are recommended. Jonathan Fenn retired.

Employment: employers

Within: Employment: employers

At Slaughter and May, 'real class act' Charles Cameron recently took over as head of the pensions and employment team, following the retirement of long-serving former practice chief Jonathan Fenn, who now serves as a senior consultant to the firm. The magic circle firm advises on the full range of board-level employment matters, from appointments to terminations, remuneration and disputes, with a particular focus on incentives-related work. The practice has recently seen an uptick in work relating to industrial relations as well as suspected employee misconduct, which it handles in tandem with the firm's global investigations group. Key names in the team include former corporate specialist Padraig Cronin, who joined the employment team in 2017, Philip Linnard, who was promoted to the partnership the same year, and 'hugely experienced and knowledgeable' senior counsel Lizzie Twigger .
