Employee Benefits 

Administration of benefit plans is one of the biggest challenges for an employer. Businesses count on our attorneys to help meet those challenges and manage successful benefit plans.

Our attorneys represent businesses large and small with all their employee benefits needs. We provide clear and concise advice on ERISA and tax-law compliance for all kinds of retirement plans including 401(k) plans, profit-sharing plans, pension plans, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), and non-qualified deferred compensation plans. We also advise clients on the ACA, COBRA, HIPAA, ERISA, tax laws, and nondiscrimination laws applicable to health plans, Section 125 “cafeteria” plans, and other welfare plans.

We proactively work with clients to ensure compliance with employee benefits laws in order to avoid legal problems in the future. However, if litigation or other legal problems arise, our attorneys have trial and mediation experience which our clients rely upon to help solve the problem.

As the laws continue to evolve and change, we strive to keep our clients up to date with those changes. 

Areas in which we offer advice to clients include:

  • Affordable Care Act (ACA) 
  • Applications for Internal Revenue Service approval of qualified plans
  • Assistance to employers in evaluation of retirement plan providers
  • Assisting professional employer organizations (PEOs) with multiple-employer plan and other benefit plan issues
  • Audits of employee benefit plans for legal compliance
  • Correction of plan administration/documentation problems
  • Design/drafting of all qualified plans, including
  • Employee benefit plan litigation
  • ERISA fiduciary issues
  • Executive compensation
  • Group health plan continuation coverage (COBRA)
  • Health and welfare plans
  • Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Health reimbursement arrangements (HRAs)
  • Health savings accounts (HSAs)
  • Multiple-employer plans (MEPs)
  • Nondiscrimination rules under section 105(h)
  • Non-qualified deferred compensation plans
  • Pension plans
  • Phantom stock plans
  • Qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs)
  • Qualified and non-qualified retirement plans
  • Section 125 “cafeteria” plans
  • Stock option plans (incentive stock options or nonqualified stock options)
  • Voluntary correction program applications (VCP)
  • Voluntary employees’ beneficiary associations (VEBAs)
  • Wellness programs
    • Non-discrimination and privacy rules under HIPAA
