Private Company Long-Term Incentive Design

Install best-in-class private company long-term incentive awards that help drive performance even under conditions of acute talent shortages.

Long-term incentive design in a private company is difficult. Private companies often have unusual entity structures, and without liquid equity, it can be very difficult to make any form of equity compensation valuable to those receiving it. Furthermore, there are important decisions, such as whether to award true equity or phantom equity and how to structure metrics and payout terms. Perhaps long-term equity isn’t even the right answer.

We’re here to help you sort through these very important questions. We focus on private companies preparing to eventually go public, specifically by helping to professionalize their equity granting policies, share pool management, instrument design, and participant communications.
