Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation

Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation

Employee benefits and executive compensation strategies are a useful tool in attracting and retaining the best talent, but the laws governing the benefits are some of the most complex and can play a major role in any transaction. 

Our attorneys advise private and public sector companies and individuals in virtually every aspect of employee benefits, executive compensation and stock, as well as other equity-based compensation law. We emphasize a proactive approach to alert clients to potential issues and help them stay current with trends and changes in the law. We often anticipate issues before they happen and, when disputes arise, are ready to advocate for our clients’ positions.

We have deep experience representing clients in:

  • General employee benefits compliance
  • ERISA rules, reporting and disclosure requirements
  • Retirement plans
  • Health and welfare programs
  • Executive compensation
  • Employee stock ownership plans
  • Equity incentive plans
  • Fiduciary and prohibited transaction advice
  • Non-Qualified retirement plans

Our Employee Benefits attorneys regularly work with our Business attorneys to advise on benefits issues related to business transactions, including mergers and acquisitions.
