  • Advise on and assist with any regulatory requirements related to share-based and other incentive plans (e.g., securities, currency control filing requirements)
  • Provide guidance on navigating local employment laws when implementing incentive plans, including those regulating data protection, discrimination, termination, trade unions and works council
  • Develop contracts and related documents to convey complex technical issues in simple terms employees can understand
  • Create practical solutions for managing incentive plans amid major business change and restructuring projects, including corporate transactions
