Associate Attorney (Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation)

Roberts & Holland LLP

in New York NY

Logo for Roberts & Holland LLP

Roberts & Holland LLP, a mid-sized New York City law firm, is seeking an associate for our employee benefits and executive compensation practice group. We provide advice relating to tax-qualified retirement plans, welfare plans and executive compensation arrangements for clients in a variety of industries, including professional sports, real estate, insurance, consulting, and hotel operations.

The ideal candidate would have two to four years of law firm experience handling ERISA compliance matters relating to retirement and welfare plans. With respect to education, a JD from a top-tier law school is required.

The primary responsibilities of the position are as follows:

  • Draft plan documents and participant communications and forms relating to retirement benefit arrangements, such as 401(k) plans, traditional defined benefit plans, insured annuity programs and nonqualified deferred compensation plans.
  • Serve as a day-to-day point of contact for clients and other service providers in order to resolve legal and operational issues in connection with retirement plans that are subject to ERISA and/or the Internal Revenue Code (including Section 409A).
  • Advise clients on implementation and ongoing compliance issues regarding welfare benefit programs, including insured medical plans, healthcare reimbursement accounts and flexible spending accounts.
  • Perform research on sophisticated tax and ERISA issues and prepare written communications summarizing and analyzing the research.
  • Review and negotiate service provider agreements relating to ERISA plan investments, as well as plan administration and consulting services.
  • Represent clients in connection with Internal Revenue Service and Department of Labor compliance filings for benefit plans.
  • Draft language to be included in collective bargaining agreements relating to employee benefits matters, including new benefit plan designs.
  • Evaluate ERISA representations in transactional documents.
  • Advise clients on prohibited transaction issues relating to IRA and/or ERISA plan investments. 
  • Assess legal issues and advise clients regarding the establishment of other employee benefit arrangements, such as tuition reimbursement, employee assistance and legal services programs.

The position will be full-time and based in our New York City office.
