Arnold & Porter LLP's Compensation and Benefits practice is known for its ability to work effectively with clients in dealing with the challenges they face in the compensation and benefits area. We bring a multidisciplinary approach to solving our clients' problems, with our lawyers having deep experience not only with ERISA and tax law aspects of compensation and benefits programs, but also with corporate, securities, and employment law aspects that often are key to developing comprehensive solutions.
We have a long tradition of advising a diverse client base that includes large publicly held corporations, privately held corporations, financial institutions, partnerships and limited liability companies (including private equity funds and hedge funds), and not-for-profit entities.
Our compensation and benefits attorneys work with clients on a wide range of compensation and employee benefit plan matters. We provide advice on the tax code's rules governing executive compensation; the compensation and benefits aspects of mergers, acquisitions, and bankruptcies; fiduciary duty and prohibited transaction rules under ERISA; tax-qualified plans; compensation and benefits-related litigation; plan terminations; and withdrawal liability. We handle complex compensation and benefits-related projects and large-scale controversies, as well as day-to-day counseling on compensation and benefits matters.
