Hrishi Shah is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s Corporate practice group. He assists public and private companies and not-for-profits with all aspects of employee benefits and executive compensation issues.
I counsel qualified retirement and welfare plan sponsors on a wide variety of legal issues, including compliance with ERISA, the Affordable Care Act, HIPAA, tax issues, and other federal laws. I regularly assist clients with day-to-day administration issues, including benefit claims and appeals, interpretation of ambiguous plan language, and other compliance issues. I also negotiate terms of service agreements with prospective vendors and advise clients regarding risk exposure.
In addition, I advise clients on the design, implementation, and termination of executive compensation arrangements, such as nonqualified deferred compensation, equity and equity-based compensation, and incentive plans.
I also provide due diligence and other support related to benefits and executive compensation matters in mergers and acquisitions, including Code Section 280G issues and risk assessment of compliance failures.
In an increasingly competitive post-pandemic employment landscape, employers will need to be creative with their benefits offerings to recruit and retain the best talent. This can create unique compliance issues, which we can help employers navigate.
