EMPLOYEE BENEFITS & EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

The attorneys at Wolff & Ward recognize the need for businesses of all sizes to maintain and attract talented employees, and offering your employees certain benefits can be a powerful tool to achieve high levels of human capital in your business. Our attorneys counsel clients with respect to every aspect of employee benefits plans, from design and planning, implementation and administration, to compliance audits and plan terminations. Our attorneys will work with you to ensure that all benefit plans are structured to avoid noncompliance with ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code, HIPAA, COBRA, the Social Security Act, federal employment discrimination laws, and other federal and state laws and regulations. We routinely advise clients on the implementation and administration of:

  • 401(k) plans
  • Profit sharing plans
  • Defined benefits pension plans
  • Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs)
  • Health and welfare plans
  • Cafeteria plans

Similarly, maintaining and attracting skilled executives can be essential to the successful management of your business. We advise clients on all aspects of compensation planning for executives, including equity and deferred compensation plans. Our tax practice allows us to provide the necessary guidance to implement and maintain effective executive compensation arrangements that comply with the Internal Revenue Code and other federal and state laws and regulations.

If we can be of assistance in any of the areas described above, please contact any one of our attorneys to schedule a consultation.
