Emily M. Rickard


Emily Rickard focuses her practice on the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), and has devoted a substantial portion of her practice to the implementation and maintenance of employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs). She regularly represents companies, internal ESOP trustees, and external ESOP trustees in transactions as well as in ongoing compliance matters. Outside of the ESOP context, Emily advises clients—including employers, insurers, plan administrators, and consultants—on health and welfare programs, qualified retirement plans, nonqualified retirement plans, and executive compensation.
