Sander Schouten



Sander covers the entire spectrum of high-end specialist advice in Amsterdam's Employment and Benefits incentives practice. He supports financial institutions, listed companies, large corporates and private companies in the area of incentives, with a specific focus on the strict Dutch regulatory framework, remuneration policies and structures, a wide range of (multi-jurisdictional) incentive schemes, remuneration aspects of M&A transactions and employee participation plans.

During his secondment to Allen & Overy’s incentive team in London and the incentive team of Fenwick & West in the Silicon Valley, he grew his insight in cross-border incentive structures and solutions. To share developments and best practices, Sander has set up the firm-wide multi-disciplinary Remuneration and Incentives team in Amsterdam. Sander is also part of Amsterdam’s Financial Regulatory Team. In addition, Sander is an all-round employment lawyer with broad experience advising on various employment issues including in the context of M&A and IPO’s but also on more general employment law matters such as (collective) dismissals, transfer of undertaking, works council matters and outsourcing.
