Drawing on our expertise in the areas of tax, corporate and securities laws and corporate governance, we provide a range of legal services related to executive compensation and incentive plans on behalf of public and private Canadian companies, private equity clients and foreign companies as well as executives and senior management across all sectors.
We apply a practical and innovative approach to creating and negotiating tax-effective compensation arrangements for executives that combine one or more compensation awards, including deferred share units, restricted and performance share units, stock option plans, share appreciation rights, and other unique equity and long-term incentive plans.
We also have expertise in cross-border compensation arrangements, shareholder agreements, clawbacks, say on pay, and governance policy development and review.
In addition, we have extensive experience in drafting and reviewing public company disclosure, advising on compliance obligations, and helping clients deal with regulatory inquiries and the stock exchange rules and approval requirements surrounding executive compensation.
