Equity compensation can be particularly useful to a startup company, which may not have the cash necessary to adequately attract, retain and motivate employees with market-rate salaries. In certain industries, it is standard practice for a startup to include equity as a part of every employee’s compensation package. To make the best use of an equity compensation program, a startup must understand the legal implications, tax consequences and accounting treatment of granting each type of equity award.
Join Practical Law for a free 75-minute webinar in which Shawn E. Lampron, a partner with Fenwick & West LLP, and her colleague, Marshall Mort, discuss the types of equity awards commonly used by early-stage startups and highlight key reasons why certain types of awards are used at various stages of a startup’s development.
