Daniel Naftalin - Mishcon de Reya

Welcome to the latest edition of Executive Matters, our quarterly publication tailored to the challenges and legal issues faced by Senior Executives.

It has been a noteworthy few months in the Senior Executive space for Mishcon. Following the Financial Reporting Council's (FRC) failure to refer to the role of general counsel in its consultation on the UK Corporate Governance Code, our Corporate Governance team discusses the implications, including their own reply to the FRC on the issue. As part of our "Jazz Shapers" series, in association with Jazz FM, we sat down Priya Lakhani OBE, Founder CEO of CENTURY Tech, to discuss her extraordinary career from barrister to entrepreneur. And I am delighted to announce that Liz Hunter, a highly experienced specialist in equity reward and employee incentive plans, has joined our Employment team as a non-lawyer partner.

Further afield, the Supreme Court delivered a landmark judgment on whether shares and share options should be taxed as income earnings from employment. It is an extremely important decision for all senior executives who hold such awards and Liz (straight out of the gates!) explains what you need to know. Finally, our Immigration team discusses the various options available to founders and senior executives wishing to relocate to the UK.
