Employee Benefits & Pension Plans


Representing over 100 qualified plans, Bricker & Eckler has substantial experience advising employers who sponsor tax-qualified pension and retirement plans. Our attorneys are involved with the design, qualification and administration of numerous tax-qualified plans including 401(k) plans, defined benefit pension plans and employee stock ownership plans, and we have vast experience with the tax and ERISA considerations involved in large, complex pension arrangements. Additionally, we counsel clients in mergers, divestitures, and complete and partial terminations of qualified plans.

The firm also has considerable experience in tax-favored benefit plans, including cafeteria plans, medical plans, deferred compensation and life insurance plans, dependent care assistance, tuition assistance, and a wide variety of fully and partially self-funded health and benefit plans, including Section 50l(c)(9) tax exempt trusts. Our attorneys frequently advise the design, administration, amendment and modification of such welfare benefit programs.
