Complex & Executive Service Contracts

Do all your employees have a written contract of employment? If not, their employment is determined by legislative default. If you want to control how your organisation deals with issues such as staff holidays, absence and performance management – and you want commonality of terms between your employees – you have to agree your own contract with your staff.​

What's more, your senior staff and directors will often have access to important and valuable information about your business – so it's important to know that you can control how they deal with that information, both during their tenure and after they leave. We can tailor restricted covenants for senior employees and directors and advise on what's likely to be enforceable.​

Our service includes the preparation of senior employment contracts for key staff; directors' service agreements, which set out the statutory requirements of directors alongside any employed role they undertake; non-executive directors' letters of appointment, spelling out the terms of their engagement with the company and consultancy agreements. ​

We will work with you to understand exactly what your requirements are, what's been agreed, and what each individual is actually doing, so we can provide a bespoke contract tailored to your needs.

The US Congress passed the Corporate Transparency Act in 2021 to create a beneficial ownership registry for US legal entities. The US Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN, has recently issued final regulations on the act. The regulations clarify who must file information, what information they must submit and when they must file. FinCEN’s new reporting requirements go into effect 1 January 2024.
Regulators, customers, investors and employees are demanding that environmental, social and governance principles drive how organisations operate and what they report on.
To take advantage of the global talent pool, companies are increasingly offering stock equity to attract and retain employees. The equity is usually awarded at a low cost in a pre-IPO phase, and in some cases involves globally mobile employees. Granting stock options to expatriate employees can introduce important tax obligations and risks in the home and host countries that are sometimes not fully understood by multinational employers.
