Employee Benefits & Pension
Since the establishment of Reid and Riege in 1950, pensions and employee benefits have been a cornerstone of the firm’s practice. The pension and employee benefits clients range from New England’s largest employers to sole proprietors, and also include employers located outside of New England. The Employee Benefits & Pension Practice Area advises clients on compliance with laws that relate to retirement plans, welfare benefit plans and executive compensation programs. Such laws include ERISA, pertinent provisions of the Internal Revenue Code, and applicable portions of the age discrimination and securities laws. We provide advice on plan design, draft plan documents, and represent clients in investigations, audits, compliance programs and other proceedings involving the Department of Labor, the Internal Revenue Service and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
We also address employee benefit plan issues involved in mergers and acquisitions, litigation and bankruptcies and insolvencies.
Attorneys in the Employee Benefits & Pension Practice Area regularly post articles on a variety of topics relevant to retirement plans, health and welfare benefit plans, and executive compensation arrangements, including compliance with ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code and other laws that govern their form and administration on Reid and Riege's Benefits Law Insider Blog.
