Overview

Burr & Forman has substantial experience dealing with employee benefits. Whether it's a favorable tax treatment or attracting and retaining quality employees, employees and employers favor compensation in the form of employee benefits rather than current cash compensation. Burr's attorneys advise and represent clients on all phases of employee benefits planning and administration.

Our attorneys know the law and how to apply it to our clients' plans and needs. We also know how to temper the law's application based upon particular circumstances and how to represent and pursue our client's interests before federal regulatory agencies.
