Welcoming Samantha Lenox as Head of Employee Incentives to lead growing practice

We’re very pleased to announce that we have appointed employee incentives and employee ownership specialist Samantha Lenox as our Head of Employee Incentives. She will lead and further strengthen our employee incentives offering and support growing client demand. Samantha’s appointment forms part of our ambitious plan to double the number of lawyers we have by hiring 60 new solicitors by 2025.

With over 20 years’ post qualified experience in supporting clients with the design, implementation, communication and operation of employee and management incentive arrangements, Samantha has helped the full spectrum of businesses from SMEs to multinationals to achieve their growth ambitions. Samantha is a strong advocate for employee ownership and has supported many businesses to transition into broad-based employee ownership, commonly using employee ownership trusts.

Throughout her career, Samantha has worked at top-50 law firms Simmons & Simmons and Taylor Wessing and in senior roles within the tax departments of consulting firms, PwC and Deloitte.

Expressing excitement about her appointment, Samantha says:

It’s exciting to be part of a firm which is disrupting the way legal services are delivered. I’m pleased to be joining Harper James because of their ability to deliver high quality advice to entrepreneurial businesses at affordable prices. I’m also thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a very experienced team to advise clients on employee ownership programmes and continue supporting business growth and wealth creation for all stakeholders.

On her appointment, our Legal Services Director, Ashley Mott, adds:

Having someone with Samantha's credentials on board is a significant step forward for our existing employee and equity incentive offering. Having a growing team of senior specialists in this important area of law, alongside our existing corporate and employment teams, enables Harper James to meet growing client demand. I’m excited that our clients will benefit from the depth and breadth of Samantha's experience and expertise.

Samantha will be leading our team of five other specialist employee incentive and pensions experts, who together have more than 100 years’ post-qualified experience between them. Our team includes Employee Incentives Partner Ian Fraser; Senior Employee Incentives Solicitors Abby Watson, James Borshell and Liam Liddy. They specialise in the full range of employee incentives matters, including EOTs, EMI, CSOP, SIP and SAYE schemes, pension schemes and more.
