Carrie crafts practical solutions to complex problems without overlooking technical details. Her practice focuses exclusively on employee benefits and executive compensation law, representing employers – large and small, public and private, for-profit and tax-exempt – in developing, maintaining, and sometimes terminating their benefits, compensation programs, and policies.
Acutely conscious of demands in the modern workforce, she guides employers through controlling employee benefits costs while attracting and retaining key talent. In her practice, Carrie handles a wide variety of compensation and benefits matters. She has assisted clients with 401(k) plans, 403(b) and 457 plans, pension plans, cash balance plans, IRAs, nonqualified retirement plans (including excess benefit SERPs and other top hat plans), incentive plans, deferred compensation plans, and equity and equity-based compensation arrangements. Carrie also regularly drafts and advises on compliance issues associated with welfare benefit plans, fringe benefit plans, and employment and severance agreements.
