Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation

Valuable counsel on executive compensation and employee benefits law.

Husch Blackwell's executive compensation and employee benefits law team advises organizations on the design, implementation, administration and termination of benefit and compensation plans that comply with the many regulations governing employee benefits. We represent both “consumers” of executive compensation and employee-benefit services — employers and in-house fiduciaries — and “providers” — banks, mutual funds, investment advisors and third-party administrators. By understanding the workforce, industry and metrics of each client, we are able to offer tailored guidance on the most advantageous benefit plans.  

Our executive compensation and employee benefits law team provides counsel on employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs); health and welfare plans; 401(k), 403(b), defined benefit and other retirement plans; employee incentives; severance arrangements and more. We also represent employers and fiduciaries in litigation when necessary.
