Executive Compensation & Employee Benefits

Tonkon Torp helps organizations navigate the complex world of employee benefits and executive compensation.

Our attorneys can assist in the design and implementation of effective plans, programs, and individual agreements that meet legal requirements, and that reflect current best practices. We have experience working with businesses across a variety of industries and we understand the specific management needs of all business types — privately held, publicly traded, and nonprofit.

Our attorneys stay up to date on legislation and regulations, advising employers on how to plan for and best address compliance issues.

Tonkon Torp’s executive compensation and employee benefits attorneys assist clients with performance-based incentive programs, equity-based plans, tax-qualified retirement plans, and supplemental retirement plans. We work closely with client management and human resource teams to design optimal programs, prepare required documents, and advise on ongoing administration or termination of complex programs.

When compensation and benefits matters are triggered during mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, and other major business transactions, we guide clients in protecting their interests and ensuring the integrity of the transactions. Clients faced with benefits-related litigation, including claims under ERISA, also have access to Tonkon Torp’s labor and employment litigation team for counsel and effective, experienced representation.

Our experience covers a range of matters, including:

  • Stock-based compensation plans
  • Tax-qualified retirement plans
  • Non-qualified deferred compensation and supplemental retirement plans
  • Health and welfare benefits plans, including compliance with ERISA, HIPAA, COBRA, and other statutes
  • Cafeteria plans and fringe benefits plans
  • Change of control and severance plans and agreements
  • 403(b) and 457 plans for nonprofit organizations
