Our goals in representing employers are to help clients design, implement and administer their employee benefit programs cost-effectively and to help them minimize the legal risk of participant lawsuits under ERISA, Department of Labor, or Internal Revenue Service investigations, while always keeping in perspective the employer’s corporate and human relations objectives.
The employee benefits and executive compensation practice provides a full range of business legal services with respect to employee benefits and executive compensation matters.
Our practice is broad based, covering the design and implementation of qualified retirement plans; compliance with regulatory requirements under ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code, and federal securities laws; ERISA litigation; complex pension fund investments; employee stock ownership plan transactions; welfare benefit plan issues; and the design, implementation, and administration of nonqualified deferred compensation and stock option plans.
The scope of our practice provides our lawyers with deep insights into all aspects of an employer’s benefit programs. Similarly, the firm’s experience in representing health care organizations provides additional insights in representing employers with respect to their group health plans.
