Employee and Executive Benefits and Compensation

Proactive resources for your benefits and compensation programs

Employee benefits and executive compensation packages are essential for employers to attract and retain talented employees. Our tax and employment lawyers provide comprehensive advice to ensure the best solution to any compensation or benefits issue, regardless of geographic location.

We represent employers of all sizes and types (ranging from start-ups, to non-profits and large public and private businesses in a full range of industries), and advise executives in connection with employment agreements and executive compensation issues.  Whether advising on the impact of a noncompete or tailoring an employment agreement that provides incentive pay or deferred compensation, our attorneys work together to ensure that our clients are fully protected.

The Culhane Meadows team helps to design, draft, and administer all types of employee benefit and executive compensation arrangements, such as 401(k) plans, equity compensation arrangements, health plans, change-in-control arrangements, incentive pay plans, and qualified and nonqualified deferred compensation.  We routinely assist clients with on-boarding senior-level employees or designing the best exit strategy when needed.  We advise on the myriad of laws affecting employee benefits and executive compensation, such as ERISA, HIPAA, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), COBRA, and numerous sections of the Internal Revenue Code, including 409A.
