Excerpt from Recent Developments for the First Quarter 2013 -
The North American Global Equity Services ("GES") practice group is pleased to provide the current edition of our Clients and Friends Newsletter summarizing notable developments from around the world affecting global equity and incentive plans occurring primarily between January and March 2013. In some instances, topics previously discussed in prior newsletters are addressed further here. Attorneys in the GES practice group in San Francisco, Chicago and New York work extensively with multinational companies to design, implement, and maintain equity based compensation programs, including stock option, stock appreciation right ("SAR"), restricted stock ("RS"), restricted stock unit ("RSU") and stock purchase plans ("ESPPs"), for employees, consultants and directors around the world. Within this context, we provide advice regarding U.S. and non-U.S. tax, securities, labor and employment, exchange control, data privacy and other legal and regulatory requirements. We design equity based compensation programs to take into account a client's overall international tax structure and accounting requirements. We also offer sophisticated and experienced perspectives on option repricing/exchange programs and ways to preserve equity incentives in all types of corporate transactions, including spin offs, mergers and acquisitions. In addition to legal services, we provide project management services and prepare employee communications. To complement our equity based compensation practice, we also furnish guidance in connection with global and domestic benefit and incentive arrangements to document fiduciary decisions, compare benefit and incentive programs and attain compliance.
