We operate a full-service employee benefits practice, and helping employers develop retirement plans for their employees is a key component of that practice. We work with employers both large and small in advising on retirement benefits for their employees. Our work includes guidance on design, and implementation, of all types of qualified and nonqualified plans, including 401(k) plans, employee stock ownership plans, cash balance plans, profit sharing plans, and other types of defined benefit pension plans. At DBL, we understand that each employer’s goals are different, and we work closely with our clients to develop plans that meet their needs.

Our experienced lawyers also help corporate clients with regulatory compliance issues, and we work to ensure that such errors do not occur. When called upon, we negotiate with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). We assist our clients with obtaining from these agencies private letter rulings, determination letters, opinions, and other particularized guidance.
