Compensation Group

Robinson+Cole's Employee Benefits and Compensation Group provides comprehensive employee benefits services to a wide range of clients, including publicly held and privately held companies, tax-exempt organizations, educational institutions, municipalities and other governmental entities, trust companies, and financial institutions. We pride ourselves on providing benefit solutions that meet the business needs of our clients while promoting compliance with the myriad laws governing employee benefit plans. We believe that this practical approach serves our clients well, particularly in the current environment of increasing benefit costs and shrinking resources to provide those benefits.

We advise and support our clients on a wide range of employee benefit programs, including:

  • tax-qualified pension plans, including cash balance plans
  • tax-qualified profit-sharing plans, including 401(k) plans
  • employer plans covering unionized employees, including multiemployer plans
  • Section 403(b) and Section 457(b) plans of tax-exempt organizations and governmental entities
  • executive compensation arrangements, including equity and nonequity compensation and Section 409A compliance issues
  • health and welfare benefit plans, including compliance with HIPAA and health care reform
  • cafeteria plans
  • employee stock ownership plans
  • fringe benefit programs

We have extensive experience in designing, drafting, and amending pension and welfare benefit plans, as well as executive compensation arrangements. In recent years, a significant portion of our practice has focused on the identification and correction of plan compliance issues and the effective utilization of the correction programs sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Department of Labor (DOL). We frequently represent plan sponsors and fiduciaries in investigations and audits by government regulatory agencies, including the IRS, the DOL, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, and state agencies. In addition, we work closely with our litigation group to defend employers and fiduciaries in a wide range of benefits-based individual and class action claims. We assist our clients in issues relating to the administration of benefit plans, such as administratively resolving benefit claim disputes and negotiating business associate agreements and agreements with third-party service providers.

We also advise and work with clients on the complicated employee benefits issues arising in mergers, acquisitions, and other significant corporate transactions. We provide support before, during, and after the transaction, from the evaluation of benefit plans during the due diligence phase to the design and creation of postclosing benefit programs.
