Sue Farrow (formerly Sue El Hachmi)

I have a particular interest in assisting high growth, young companies to attract the best talent to enable them to flourish. Since qualification, I have specialised in creating and implementing share schemes for companies ranging from start-ups to those on the Official List. I have broad experience in advising on the UK’s tax-advantaged share schemes and on more bespoke non tax-advantaged arrangements including growth and flowering shares. In addition to designing and implementing share schemes, I have worked on the share schemes aspects of many corporate transactions, whether public company M&A, private equity or sales/acquisitions by private treaty.

Sue is a highly experienced share plan and incentives lawyer and has spent much of her career at leading international law firms.

As a specialist share schemes lawyer, Sue advises on the design and implementation of employee incentive arrangements for private and public companies, including all types of tax-advantaged plans and bespoke arrangements for senior executives and management.

Sue also advises on the incentive-related aspects of corporate transactions and has experience of private equity transactions and public company takeovers, flotations and demergers.
