NEW YORK, June 21, 2019: Morgan Lewis has been named as Law Firm of the Year in the “Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation” category of Chambers & Partners’ Chambers USA Awards 2019. The awards recognize a firm's preeminence in key practice areas in the last 12 months, including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth, and excellence in client service.
The practice was ranked in Band 1 on the national level and secured several state rankings in Chambers USA 2019. Fifteen lawyers throughout the country also earned individual rankings in the employee benefits and executive compensation practice categories.
With more than 75 dedicated professionals across the United States, Morgan Lewis’s Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation team advises clients on plan design, qualification, and documentation matters, fiduciary questions, plan investment issues, payroll tax, fringe benefits issues, executive compensation structure and design, and healthcare and other benefits. The team also assists multiemployer plans and their contributing employers, tax-exempt entities, and governmental employers with the unique benefits challenges they face. Related to corporate transactions, we work to ensure benefits and compensation matters are properly handled—from due diligence through postclosing integration—and to identify hidden benefits liabilities, such as multiemployer withdrawal liability.
