Our team of attorneys works side by side with our clients to ensure they receive high quality counsel and representation on Employment and Benefits issues, ranging from board-level advice on crucial compensation matters, as well as day-to-day support on employment issues.
We skillfully handle the development of employment policy documents and forms in compliance with legal requirements, the negotiation and drafting of employment contracts, as well as litigation, arbitration and other administrative hearings.
The Firm has extensive experience in tackling clients’ complicated employment challenges and an ability to tailor solutions to different confidentiality and non-competition issues, particularly unlawful competition conflicts, and on social security matters including filing, registration, claims and counterclaims procedures.
In compliance with the complex and rapidly changing rules of tax, pension and employment, our Employment and Benefits practice group helps businesses create employee benefit plans and arrangements which have become vital tools to attract and retain top talent. The Firms helps craft these plans so that they provide maximum flexibility and tax-favored benefits to employees, while also imposing the lowest after-tax cost on plan sponsors. After plans are in place, the hands-on team continues to offer ways to update plans to take full advantage of changes in the legal environment.
