Employee benefits have been revolutionized.
Health Care Reform, the demise of DOMA and an aging workforce all contribute to the new landscape. While potentially overwhelming for employers, these changes also present new opportunities to attract and retain talented workers.
We approach employee benefits with a real-world, business savvy outlook.
Having spent time “in the trenches” as HR, governmental, general counsel and CPA professionals, we know the ins and outs of the laws and regulations governing employee benefits, which means we go beyond legal advice to provide strategic counsel on how your benefits programs can align with your overall business objectives.
Employee benefits touch many areas of your business—your employees’ health and future, your financial stability, tax obligations and your ability to compete in the market.
Our team is built around specific areas of practice, which allows us to identify the nuanced issues that can bring your benefits plans to the next level.
We see the whole picture and are committed to designing plans that will carry you safely and successfully into the future.
