Russell E. Greenblatt

Russell E. Greenblatt concentrates his practice in employee welfare benefit plans and vehicles used for the funding of such benefits, such as voluntary employees’ beneficiary associations (VEBAs) and Internal Revenue Code §115 trusts. Before joining the firm in 1980, Russell served as an attorney-advisor with the Employee Plans and Exempt Organizations Division of the Office of Chief Counsel to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in Washington, DC. He was the principal author of the IRS regulations on VEBAs.

Because of Russell’s particular experience with respect to welfare benefit programs, Katten serves as special benefits counsel to many Fortune 500 companies and governmental entities, providing services including design, documentation and implementation of employee welfare trusts as well as representation of employers and trusts before the IRS and Department of Labor (DOL) in audits, ruling requests and litigation.
