Our Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation practice delivers service in a unique way. We have structured our practice to give our clients an immediate advantage. Our approach combines our extensive technical skill and experience, our background as an advisor and consultant to enterprises regarding their benefit needs and strategies – akin to those of the major consulting firms – and the direct experience of our employee benefit lawyers in litigating employee benefit disputes. The result is that our clients enjoy the value of all three of these capabilities for each hour of service we provide.
Not only do we understand legal compliance, but also national trends and how they interplay. The result is a simplified explanation of complex issues, and a direct approach to solving problems that takes into account compliance, business needs and litigation prevention. This leads to a strong, effective working relationship, where, with Benesch’s advice and counsel, clients will know how to best proceed and minimize litigation risks.
Our approach is comprehensive and involves our commitment to responsive, first-rate service. We assign matters to qualified individuals whose experience level is commensurate with the complexity of the given matter, resulting in efficient and cost effective results for our clients.
The background and years of experience of our team are particularly well suited for our client’s needs. As a firm that focuses much of its time on general representation of growing companies and organizations, by necessity and through experience, we have dealt with virtually every aspect of the administration and operation of employee benefit plans. This work includes all of the methods of designing, revising and updating these plans and working with literally hundreds of our clients’ TPAs on a multitude of issues from negotiating administrative service agreements to working with them on correcting retirement plan operational failures.
