Bonus Schemes

We advise on the type of bonus schemes relevant to your business, its implementation, operation and any associated issues such as the FSA / FCA Remuneration Code or long-term incentive arrangements. In the current financial climate, variable remuneration is playing a larger role in compensation structures. It is essential therefore, that your contractual arrangement incentivise staff but do not leave the business vulnerable.

Recent instructions include:

  • Drafting schemes with deferred cash/equity splits for a hedge fund client
  • Advising on bonus entitlements for maternity leavers for a luxury retailer
  • Advising a stock broker employer on obligations under the FSA / FCA Remuneration Code and the use of good leaver / bad leaver provisions
