A top 20 UK Law firm is currently looking to hire a senior employee incentives solicitor in London

The team advises on all aspects of employee benefits, including the design, implementation and communication of senior executive and employee incentive plans, the establishment and operation of employee benefit trusts, executive tax planning (including those who are mobile internationally), as well as corporate governance, regulatory and compliance matters.

The team acts for a wide range of clients from venture capital entities to multinational companies. The team provides support to the firm's corporate teams on transactional matters, including PE deals, mergers and acquisitions, flotations and business reconstructions.

The share schemes workload involves a mix of transactional/corporate support work and advisory work, which will vary according to deal activity.

The role will involve advising on the drafting and implementation of tax advantaged and non-tax advantaged share schemes, such as growth shares, JSOP, EMI, CSOP and LTIP.

The transactional work will include acting on public and private M&A deals. Clients for advisory work include GVC, Britvic, Dixons Carphone, William Hill and JD Sports.

You will be expected to manage your own workload as well as supporting partners on large and complex matters. You will play a role in helping the team develop and build relationships with new and existing clients through business development initiatives. You will play a key part in shaping and driving the development of the team, including the supervision of junior members, and there will be plenty of opportunity for you to take on additional responsibility and advance your career.
