Welcome to the first of our Reed Smith Global Equity Compensation Newsletters. This is just one of our new ways of keeping clients informed of the latest issues in global equity compensation.

Reed Smith has been in the business of advising companies on their equity compensation arrangements and stock plans for many years. Our Global Equity Compensation team operates in many jurisdictions and provides clients with joined-up advice across their countries of operation. We advise clients on the legal issues related to all types of equity programs, from regulatory compliance and labor law issues to designing local qualified and tax effective plans.

We provide both advisory and transaction services and solutions. We undertake commercial advisory work for our clients including design, implementation and communication of plans. We also advise our clients on the relevant issues related to their mergers and acquisitions and divestitures.

We will be publishing further newsletters on a regular basis so please let us know if you would like to see a particular topic covered in a future edition.

In this Issue:

  • Ruling Addresses Application of Favorable Stock Option Regime
  • A Tough New Regime in the UK
  • It's Never Too Early to Start Preparing for Year-End Global Stock Plan Reporting Requirements
  • Fund Managers - Further Regulation on Compensation Policies and Practices
