Remuneration in the workplace is rarely straightforward and yet pensions and incentives are high on the list of priorities of all concerned. A well-designed remuneration package is not just tax-efficient; it can motivate staff to achieve high levels of performance. Our Pensions and Incentives team work closely with their employment, corporate, tax, regulatory and financial services colleagues to ensure you receive the most up-to-date advice provided in a way that is a clear, concise and easy to understand.

Our pension law services

Due to the complexities of pensions legislation and funding issues, pensions are a hot topic for UK businesses. All UK employers are now required to contribute to their workers’ pension savings under “auto enrolment”. Our pension law specialists can advise on auto-enrolment issues, compliance matters, the amendment, closure and winding-up of pension schemes, third party contracts, Pension Ombudsman claims, and all associated pension scheme documentation or regulations.

Our incentive law services

Our incentives lawyers advise clients on broad-based employee share schemes as well as short-term and long-term incentives. We also help introduce equity or phantom equity  incentive arrangements, cash-settled bonuses and deferred incentives. We tailor our advice to ensure that any schemes we help to establish are best suited to our clients’ employee culture and are compatible with any share and other incentive arrangements that they already have in place.

Who do we advise?

Our pensions and incentives lawyers advise employers, trustees and other practitioners, ensuring that the correct arrangements for each individual or corporate situation are applied.
