K&L Gates employee benefits, ESOPs, and executive compensation lawyers provide employers, and a wide variety of other stakeholders in the employee benefits industry, the tools they need to engage in the competition for talented labor and to manage the consequent regulatory burden.

Our lawyers provide the full range of legal services relating to employee benefit plans, programs, and arrangements, including tax, ERISA, securities, regulatory and legislative, litigation, and fiduciary issues in connection with the design and implementation, ongoing administration, and termination of plans, as well as the investment of plan assets. We have more than 30 years of experience with employee stock ownership plans dating to the creation of ESOPs as part of ERISA in 1974 and have advised our ESOP clients in virtually every conceivable type of ESOP matter. We also advise employers in connection with the design, implementation, and negotiation of executive, key management, and director compensation; deferral and equity programs; and their related tax, ERISA, and securities implications.
