Lynette is an Employment & Reward partner specialising in share plans and incentives, and leads our share plans and incentives team.
I have worked with Lynette Jacobs and her colleagues for a long time now on our equity incentive plans and I know what they can do. They understand how our business works, so they provide us with good, timely advice at the right price. I expect them to be good; the bar is high and they deliver.

Tullow Oil moved to Pinsent Masons in 2015 and have enjoyed an excellent relationship since then. Lynette and her team provided us with invaluable information and advice during 2016 on topics such as securities laws, exchange controls and employment laws in countries where it is not normally sought. This included Gabon, Ghana, Uganda, Kenya and Mauritania. Having previously worked with Pinsent Masons over the last 20 years we have a long and trusted relationship and we are extremely happy with the service they provide.
Dean Bradford - Share Plans Manager Tullow Oil plc
Lynette always provides sensible, accurate advice promptly, at good value and are straight forward to deal with. We have repeatedly gone back to her with our share plans work for that reason.
Sandra Odell - Company Secretary Rightmove plc
The advice we receive from Lynette is always commercial, practical and tailored to our situation. We don’t get a simple reproduction of a text book highlighting the issues, but rather receive an easily digestible summary which offers a way forward. If it is not practical to offer share plans in a certain jurisdiction Lynette is not afraid to say so.
