Illinois and Missouri Benefit Plan Lawyers

Employee benefits are governed by ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code, COBRA, HIPAA, the Pension Protection Act, the Affordable Care Act, and other federal or state laws. The complex regulations and requirements affecting these plans require knowledgeable legal guidance. We assist our client funds in all aspects of these plans, from drafting plan documents, to plan administration and litigation. We can help you to comply with the existing and new laws regulating employee benefit plans, and represent you before government agencies regulating employee benefit plans, such as the Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service.

The attorneys in the Employee Benefits Group also serve as special benefits counsel in various capacities, including assisting with plan transactions, compliance issues, opinion letters, arbitration of deadlocked disputes between plan fiduciaries and as expert witnesses.
