Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation


We design and draft the full range of pension, welfare and fringe benefit plans, communicate them to employees, handle filings with the Internal Revenue Service and Department of Labor and provide guidance to ensure compliance with all applicable laws. We also advise employers and other fiduciaries about their ERISA requirements concerning pension plan investments and prohibited transactions.

Sullivan & Worcester tax lawyers design tax-efficient equity and nonqualified deferred compensation plans that conform to all changes in accounting rules and tax laws, including new Internal Revenue Code Section 409A. We advise public and private companies on all available compensation tools, including stock option and phantom stock plans, broad-based plans such as employee stock purchase plans and employee stock ownership plans ("ESOPs") and all forms of nonqualified deferred compensation.
