Partnering to meet your employee benefits needs

With Quarles, you should expect the best advice on complex employee benefits law matters, delivered with an eye toward efficiency and effectiveness. We will always deliver solutions with your business objectives in mind, and we understand how vital it is to balance business and employee needs in an ever-changing legislative landscape. We provide practical advice on significant projects such as the complete restructuring, tax impact and implementation of a client's retirement or executive compensation programs, but can also advise on single, discrete, time-sensitive questions. We have particular experience supporting tax-exempt and religious organizations with their benefits plans. Serving as a guide and partner, our employee benefits attorneys know how to apply the flexibility that comes with ERISA's exemption for church plans while recognizing the often-arcane limits that remain.

They have come to rely on our experience and our ability to translate the technical aspects of employee benefits law into practical advice. We can support your business in matters relating to retirement plans, health and welfare plans, fiduciary issues and ERISA litigation, nonqualified deferred compensation and executive compensation, corporate transactions and multi-employer plans.
