JOIN THE TEAM

A National Reputation for Employee Benefits Law

Our sophisticated practice and national reputation in the employee benefits field have enabled us to attract top legal talent.

Many of our attorneys have joined us because they understand the value and rarity of working with a large group of employee benefits specialists. At Trucker Huss, attorneys can walk down the hall and receive assistance with complex questions on any legal matter related to benefits and executive compensation from other attorneys who are recognized experts in their field.

In many multi-practice law firms, ERISA and employee benefits represent only a small fraction of a firm’s total staff and business. By contrast, at Trucker Huss, the practice of ERISA and employee benefits law is our only business.

ERISA and employee benefits practitioners are drawn to us by our:

  • Large, diverse client base and opportunity for involvement in unique, complex matters
  • Critical mass of expertise and extensive depth of understanding of plans and benefits issues
  • Team structure designed to serve clients’ needs
  • Commitment to serving our clients with the highest ability and integrity
  • Congenial and casual work environment
