Employee Benefits


Employers offering non-wage compensation to employees in addition to their normal wages or salaries rely on Waller’s employee benefits attorneys to analyze plans and provide strategic advice. We routinely design and draft all types of employee benefit plans including:

  • Cafeteria or "flexible benefit" plans
  • COBRA compliance arrangements
  • Health and welfare benefit plans
  • Qualified retirement plans
  • Wellness benefits

Employee benefits issues can arise in contexts other traditional benefits planning.  For example, Waller represents both purchasers and sellers in mergers and acquisitions, and lending and financing transactions, with respect to:

  • Arranging post-closing benefits
  • Addressing change in control and golden parachute tax concerns
  • Benefit plan liabilities
  • Performing due diligence analysis

We also advise clients regarding transactions involving both leveraged and non-leveraged ESOPs. Our attorneys are sensitive to the accounting and business impact of the tax, fiduciary, valuation and other considerations that apply in these situations and use this insight to best serve the client’s strategic goal.
