Experience

$1 Million-Plus in Tax Liability Avoided

Secured several releases for employment and tax-related claims against a client. Inaccurate tax advice had led the company’s board of directors to issue options that did not comply with Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code. We were able to avoid tax liabilities for the client and option holders without triggering IRS action, and obtained release agreements from all option holders.

ACA Employer Shared Responsibility Penalties Avoided

Drafted client response to IRS for Affordable Care Act Employer Shared Responsibility (ESRP) penalties. Provided amended ESRP filings and supporting documentation to avoid over $25,000 in penalties.

Equity Incentive Program for Client

Assisted a private equity firm with the design and implementation of equity incentive programs for key employees.  

Internal Revenue Service and Department of Labor Plan Audit Representation

Represented several plan sponsors through Internal Revenue Service and Department of Labor audits of 401(k) and defined benefit pension plans. Assisted with the responses to information requests, in-person meetings, and negotiation of settlements and corrective action.

Review of Benefit Plans Related to Acquisition

Assisted an employer with the review of benefit plans in an acquisition. After identifying operational issues with the target's 401(k) plan, we provided assistance with required correction program filings, integration of the workforce into the client's plans, and merger of the target's 401(k) plan.

Termination of Pension Plans for Large Employer

Assisted a large employer with lump sum offerings and a complete termination of six pension plans after the company decided to take affirmative action to de-risk and terminate said pension plans.
