Brownstein Rask has an active employee benefits practice. We provide legal advice for multi-employer trusts and single employers, as well as plans of nonprofit organizations and governmental employers. Our practice includes a full range of benefits, including:
Retirement plans: traditional defined benefit, money purchase pension, profit sharing, 401(k) and 403(b) plans. We assist trustees and employers with plan design, drafting, ongoing legal and administration, required notices, investment oversight, IRS compliance, and Department of Labor issues.
Health and welfare plans and fringe benefits. In addition to making sure health plans comply with health care reform, we draft plans and policies, determine tax and ERISA issues, and deal with the interpretations of various laws such as HIPAA, COBRA, and state insurance requirements.
Executive compensation and equity compensation. We represent employers and executives with respect to employment and severance agreements, deferred compensation, stock options, and other incentive arrangements.
