Compliance with the numerous legislative and regulatory rules governing employee benefit plans is the cornerstone of the practices at Trucker Huss. Our experience and expertise in reviewing and understanding these rules allows us to offer the highest quality counseling to our clients.
Our attorneys frequently interact with the IRS and DOL on public policy issues that may impact our clients, including submitting comments in connection with regulatory proposals and participating in leadership roles in groups like the NCCMP and ABA Joint Committee on Employee Benefits that can help influence the legislative and regulatory landscape.
Receiving notice of an IRS audit or DOL investigations concerning an employee benefit plan (including retirement, executive compensation, and health and welfare plans) or notice of an PBGC audit concerning plan termination or insurance premiums can be daunting. In these situations, we serve as employee benefits counselors to our clients. Legal activities and support include:
- Facilitating and supporting clients during IRS, DOL or PBGC audits
- Handling all correspondence, phone calls and contact with the IRS, DOL or PBGC
- Drafting written responses to legal issues raised by the IRS, DOL or PBGC
- Negotiating closing agreements or other resolutions of the audit or investigation
