Manning Fulton’s employee benefits attorneys understand the evolution of benefits law and the market for executive compensation.  We know that creating and maintaining effective employee benefits and compensation programs requires a balancing of employee needs, company culture, cost, and administrative complexity.  We employ that understanding and experience to help organizations spanning dozens of industries, including taxable and tax-exempt entities, comply with state and federal requirements governing employee benefits.  We partner with owners, human resources professionals and in-house counsel to achieve sound, cost-effective results.  And should legal disputes arise, our ERISA litigators stand ready to resolve the matter efficiently and effectively so clients can stay focused on what matters most to them – their businesses.
