A competitive benefits package enables businesses to attract top talent. A sophisticated employee benefits attorney can help control spiraling costs and administrative complexities that often arise for employers.

The laws that govern benefit plans can confuse even the most diligent and careful employer. As a result, employers must receive quality legal advice to understand and take advantage of the applicable benefits laws while minimizing the legal risks.

Our Employee Benefits Practice Group counsels employers, retirement plan fiduciaries, tax-exempt entities, financial institutions and benefit plan service providers in all aspects of retirement and welfare benefits laws, including the Internal Revenue Code, ERISA, COBRA and HIPAA. With clients ranging from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses, we have extensive experience managing sophisticated benefit plan issues that arise every day, and we devote a significant portion of our practice to issues that arise during mergers and acquisitions and bankruptcies.

We offer clients efficient, creative and forward-thinking legal advice related to the following benefit plan matters:

  • Executive compensation
  • Fiduciary planning
  • Health plans
  • Retirement plans
  • Multiemployer pension plans

Should the need arise, our attorneys are prepared to work with the IRS and U.S. Department of Labor on behalf of our clients to reduce, and even eliminate, penalties due to plan errors.
