Employee Share Scheme

Awarding shares to senior employees and directors is frequently a very important part of the overall remuneration package and can be very important in terms of incentivising and retaining key staff.

At LawDeb we are experts in setting up and managing share award schemes for public companies, from initial documentation (Rules of the Scheme, Trust Deed, etc.), through to managing the mechanics of shares awards, such as: purchasing shares to be put in trust; managing dividends and scrip distributions and the allotment of shares to the nominated beneficiaries during the vesting period (usually over a period of several years).  We are well versed in trust law and can tailor the scheme to meet the needs of the employer and the employees.

LawDeb has many years of invaluable experience setting up Share Award Schemes.

Escrow Services

LawDeb provides an array of specialist escrow services and is able to act as escrow agent through its offices in Hong Kong, London and Jersey.

Escrow requirements most frequently arise in M&A situations where the transaction consideration or retention monies, need to be held by an independent and completely trustworthy third party. The escrow agent will ensure that such monies are not released until specific pre-identified conditions have been fulfilled.

LawDeb manages documentary escrow situations, frequently involving shares, share transfers and share options. We also hold proprietary IT software or intellectual property pending patent or license approvals.

We have standard documents for efficient and timely execution of escrow arrangements and are completely familiar with relevant AML regulations and KYC procedures.

Escrows can range from simple to more complex, but here at LawDeb, we are happy to tailor an escrow solution to meet your needs.

We would be delighted to talk through the nature of your requirements and provide a quotation upon request.
