Each year, the number of laws governing the provision of health and other welfare plans grows, and existing laws become increasingly complex. Even a well-intentioned employer can quickly find itself enmeshed in a confusing patchwork of federal, state, and, at times, local regulations. Nixon Peabody’s Employee Benefits team includes a group of professionals who concentrate exclusively in this area of practice and are equipped to respond to such legal complexities.
Members of the team have decades of experience guiding employers through various compliance issues and requirements. The team includes an attorney who brings years of hands-on experience in human resources and employee benefit plan administration. Through her previous role overseeing the U.S. health and welfare benefits programs for a Fortune 500 company, she encountered the same business challenges our clients face daily. Combined with substantive knowledge and this significant understanding from an insider’s perspective, the team is able to align a client’s business objectives with the client’s culture in a practical and cost-effective manner. By working collaboratively and proactively with our clients, we are able to implement innovative and cost-saving plan designs while minimizing the likelihood of lawsuits against welfare benefit plans and their sponsors.
The team provides a wide range of service offerings, each informed by years of experience working with our deep roster of clients, both large and small. They cover all aspects of the sector, including:
