Compensation and Management Package

Managers, entrepreneurs and key employees trust our law firm for the structuring of their compensation package, in particular in an international environment.

We advise on a regular basis on:

  • The specific French tax regimes applicable to “impatriates” or expatriates
  • The arbitrage between a compensation for the functions as employee and the return on investment as shareholder
  • The employee benefits and various mechanisms of incentives through shareholding: stock-options, restricted stock units, performance stock units, warrants…
  • The assistance with the tax matters raised by international mobility for the beneficiaries of stock-options, RSUs and other mechanisms of employee benefits
  • The negotiation of split payrolls when a manager or key employee works for several entities located in different jurisdictions

Arkwood developed a specific expertise in the assistance to start-ups implementing programs to retain and incentive their teams.
