Employee Benefits and ERISA Law

We understand that this is a complex and constantly changing area of the law. Our clients rely on us to stay abreast of legislation and recent topics in the area of employee benefits. Our thorough preparation and in-depth knowledge of the law give our clients the ability to move smoothly through these processes to a successful conclusion.

The lawyers at Greenberg Burzichelli Greenberg P.C. have more than five decades of experience advising organizations to ensure they meet the compliance standards of retirement, pension or health plans. We advise our clients as they design, draft and administer employee benefit plans.

We represent clients dealing with various matters involving health and welfare funds, and annuity funds. We advise our clients on their compliance through the creation of summary plan descriptions and any changes to trust documents or by-laws that become necessary. Our lawyers are knowledgeable in most facets of the Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and strive to ensure our clients are fully compliant and aware of any challenges or changes they might face in the future.

Our firm has participated in the merger of benefit funds when leadership, for example, wishes to merge active and retiree funds in the same union or when two locals with similar interests seek to solidify their financial position. We have built a network of experts that we can call upon for consultation. We regularly work with outside financial accounting agencies to ensure everything is completed in accordance with the law.

We advise our clients on best practices when issues come up regarding private sector health and welfare funds. ERISA specifically governs these funds, but based on these guidelines our public sector clients can benefit from our experience.
