Our attorneys routinely provide advice, counseling, and litigation services to our clients on a wide range of issues related to employment law and their workforces.
The Employee Retirement and Income Security Act (ERISA) is a ubiquitous piece of legislation extending into every area of employee compensation and retirement planning. Our work in the employee benefits area described above includes familiarity with the application of ERISA to pension and welfare plans. We regularly advise plan fiduciaries as to their duties under ERISA, and counsel clients regarding prohibited transactions with ERISA plans and exemptions from the prohibited transaction rules.
We also help clients get maximum benefit from their Individual Retirement Accounts within ERISA strictures regarding plan investments and required distributions.
