Tax and Employee Benefits

Our firm offers a talented and diversified team that represents a variety of taxable and tax exempt entities. Our clients include individuals, corporations, general and limited partnerships, limited liability companies, trusts, estates and not-for-profit organizations. Our practice involves providing tax advice to both large and small businesses, including closely held, start up, and multinational businesses. We provide advice regarding United States federal, state and local taxes for our clients, as well as advice regarding the impact of US tax treaties and transfer pricing rules to our clients with international operations.

When the need arises, we also represent clients before federal, state and local tax agencies and courts.

Our Employee Benefits Practice Group provides advice with respect to design, implementation and administration of a broad range of employee benefit and executive compensation plans, including qualified plans, non qualified supplemental retirement plans, top hat plans, phantom stock plans and other deferred compensation arrangements. We have extensive experience in providing legal and tax advice to multinational companies with respect to IRC 409A deferred compensation issues for their expatriate population. We also advise our clients with respect to their obligations under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and Department of Labor and Internal Revenue Code requirements applicable to their employee benefit plans.
