Retirement, Health & Welfare Plans

For the benefit of employees.

Husch Blackwell advises employers, administrators, boards of directors, and other plan professionals on the many compliance and tax issues that arise with retirement, health, and welfare plans. In addition to designing, drafting, implementing, and administering plans, we advise on strategies for integrating plans as a result of mergers and acquisitions.

Our team has extensive experience advising employers on strategies for managing obligations under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). We establish systematic and well-documented processes that ensure our clients meet their legal responsibilities to plan participants and beneficiaries. We also advise fiduciaries on managing their duties related to the selection of investments and service providers, plan governance, and plan administration.
