The rules and regulations governing employee benefits plans are constantly in flux, making it increasingly difficult for employee benefit plan sponsors and service providers to navigate this complex landscape. Our attorneys have created this blog as a resource to help guide employers of all sizes through the complex administrative and legal challenges facing their employee benefit plans.
Representing employers in their role as plan sponsor, we also counsel insurance companies, third-party administrators, outside consultants, trustees, investment managers, fiduciaries and others acting in the role of employee benefit plan service providers. We use a wealth of experience to serve large companies with complex employee benefit plan structures and regularly work with clients’ in-house general counsel, the human resource/benefits department, the finance department, and other executives.
