Tapestry is a multi-award winning boutique firm founded in 2011 by Janet Cooper (who established and led Linklaters’ global incentives team for 20 years) and Bob Grayson (former in-house counsel at Shell, managing global compliance for 100,000+ employees).  


Although best known for our work in the financial services sector, Tapestry Compliance advises on all aspects of global HR compliance, with a focus on legal and tax due diligence for international incentive plans. We understand the need for a sensible, cost-effective approach towards compliance and the need to make local regulations work in the framework of a global remuneration policy.


Since launch, Tapestry has provided services to: more than 30 per cent of the FTSE 100, including BT, Shell, Aviva, HSBC, Rolls Royce; major global corporates like eBay and Dell; many of the major global banks, including Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley, HSBC, Ameriprise and Legg Mason.


Tapestry has been recognised as an industry leader by being awarded the Lawyer’s Boutique Law Firm of the Year 2015 and the Legal Business Boutique Law Firm of the Year 2016, as well as many other awards. In addition, Janet Cooper was recognised in 2015 by ifs ProShare with the Services to Employee Share Ownership Award for her career-long commitment and innovative approach to share plans.


We combine leading specialists in the field, and smart young lawyers, to provide high-quality practical advice to our clients as an attractive, cost-effective alternative to the traditional law firms. The firm delivers expert advice within agreed budgets, giving clients more for less.
