This US firm are currently looking for a Employee Incentives associate with 3.5-6PQE to join their team in London.

Their clients range from emerging growth companies to large public corporations, as well as CEOs, other members of senior management, boards of directors, individual directors and fiduciaries of employee benefit plans they view them as their problem solvers, not just dispensers of legal knowledge. Their approach is grounded in the importance of delivering their services with technical proficiency, a prompt and concise response, creativity, practical application and genuine concern.

They regularly work with employers on projects driven by special needs, including employee benefits issues raised by mergers and acquisitions, workforce reductions, equity incentive programs for employers with expanding foreign operations and shareholder relation issues related to say-on-pay proposals, for the full lifecycle of a company.

They are well versed in all aspects of executive compensation, including public disclosure under SEC rules; institutional shareholder and proxy advisory firm "hot buttons"; the design, drafting and implementation of a wide range of compensation plans; and the tax, securities law, labor and corporate governance aspects of compensation programs and policies. They have extensive experience in formulating and negotiating employment and severance arrangements for senior executives, including change in control agreements and indemnification agreements, and dealing with "golden parachute" issues.

They provide regular counsel regarding tax-qualified retirement programs subject to ERISA, as well as exempt programs such as top-hat plans and severance pay arrangements. Their lawyers have deep experience with ERISA's plan asset regulations on behalf of their venture capital, private equity and other investment fund clients. On the health & welfare plan side, they assist clients in the establishment of all varieties of such plans, and help them navigate the regulatory landscape, including compliance issues arising under the Affordable Care Act.
