When it comes to employee benefits, it’s not just a balancing act between the needs of your organization and the needs of employees. You also have to navigate through constantly changing state and federal laws in order to stay in compliance and avoid the risk of fines or costly litigation. Mintz Levin’s attorneys can help you make cost-effective decisions and keep your organization in compliance.
We represent global corporations, US businesses, trade associations, tax-exempt colleges, universities and independent schools, hospitals and integrated health care systems, hedge funds, private equity pools, employee benefits consultants and brokers, health insurance companies, and others on a broad spectrum of benefits matters. Our lawyers have participated in hundreds of mergers, acquisitions, and other corporate reorganizations, advising sellers, buyers, lenders, and intermediaries on benefits issues affecting their transactions.
We are counsel to dozens of 401(k) committees, and our advice is regularly sought out on plan governance and fiduciary compliance. Our lawyers routinely assist large pension funds to engage in sophisticated investment strategies, including equity swaps and other hedging arrangements. We advise multi-employer arrangements and funded welfare trusts. We practice before the IRS, Department of Labor, and the SEC, among other regulatory agencies.
