Employee benefits


Meet the team

The South African employee benefits team specialises in pension funds, medical schemes, employee incentive schemes and investment management and structures. We will advise you on all types of employee share schemes and share or cash bonus arrangements, as well as supporting you during your corporate transactions. We regularly work with lawyers from other jurisdictions within our global group on the introduction of share schemes around the world, based on those that they operate in their home territory.

You will find our advice to be resourceful and prompt. We will guide you clearly on the corporate and shareholder aspects of employee benefits and share incentives, with particular awareness of the views of trustees. You will benefit from our assistance at all stages of the process, including post-implementation matters such as advising on reporting and other regulatory requirements.

Our areas of work include

  • establishing collective investments schemes, hedge funds and other structured funds
  • advising on corporate transactions, governance and regulatory best practice
  • drafting of legal opinions on the South African regulatory regime as it relates to pension funds, medical and employee investment schemes and investment management and structure
  • advising on pension transfers.
