ERISA/Qualified Retirement Plans

We regularly advise on ERISA and qualified retirement plan compliance, operation, design, and administrative issues.


We review and amend plan documents and investment policies for legal compliance with applicable laws, advise on benefit claims and other fiduciary issues, and provide representation before the IRS, DOL, and PBGC in connection with plan determination letter filings, voluntary correction programs, and plan audits. We advise fund sponsors, investing plans and lenders with respect to income tax and ERISA issues related to benefit plan investments under the ERISA “plan asset” regulations and disclosures for such investments in offering documents.
