Employee Benefits

In today's fast-paced, competitive business environment, human resources serves a crucial role in balancing business and employee needs while staying informed and compliant with the ever-changing landscape of federal and state laws. The employee benefits team at Quarles & Brady understands the importance of this role and has been helping our clients navigate these laws for almost 100 years.

We listen to our clients and their needs and provide practical advice on everything from single, discrete questions to significant projects such as the complete restructuring of a client's retirement or executive compensation programs. We look both inside and outside the box to craft tailored, tax-advantaged solutions that satisfy a client's needs, and we provide day-to-day advice on how to implement them.

We possess a great depth of experience in all areas and aspects of employee benefits law, including:

  • retirement plans;
  • health and welfare plans;
  • fiduciary issues and ERISA litigation;
  • nonqualified deferred compensation and executive compensation
  • corporate transactions
  • multi-employer plans

Our clients—including, publicly traded Fortune 500 companies; large, privately held corporations; major health care institutions; and many other employers in a wide variety of industries—have come to rely on our experience and our ability to translate the technical aspects of employee benefits law into practical advice.
