Please join partners Jim Williams and Andrew Stanger as they address the various legal issues involved in extending the equity incentive plans of UK-based companies to employees in the United States and vice versa. For the first 30 minutes, Andrew Stanger will lead a discussion of the legal issues US companies must consider in extending their equity compensation plans to their UK employees. That will be followed by a discussion lead by Jim Williams, which will focus on US law considerations in extending equity compensation plans of UK-based companies to their US employees. Specific topics that will be addressed include the following:

  • The types of equity incentives available in the United States and the United Kingdom
  • Securities law
  • Tax law (including UK tax-advantaged plans and pending legislation that will simplify compliance)
  • Employment law considerations
  • Clawbacks
  • Data protection
  • FBAR, FATCA, and 457A (US laws that impact US taxpayers employed in the UK)

This webinar will be of particular interest to counsel and human resource professionals with global responsibilities. We hope you can join us!
