Miller & Chevalier's Employee Benefits practice offers a full range of consulting, planning, and controversy services to clients facing the challenges of increased audit and regulatory scrutiny in the benefits area, including the related payroll tax and information reporting obligations.  In addition, the practice features significant ERISA litigation capabilities, as well as policy experience, which is critical in a business environment characterized by tremendous regulatory and legislative change.  Over the past three years, the firm has represented more than 40 percent of the Fortune 100 and approximately 30 percent of the Global 100. 

The Employee Benefits group, which was named Chambers & Partners' 2015 USA Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation Team of the Year, comprises seven foundational practices: (1) Health & Welfare Plan Counseling (including ACA implementation); (2) Qualified Plan Counseling; (3) DOL Investigations & Compliance; (4) Payroll Taxes, Fringe Benefits, and Information Reporting; (5) Executive Compensation; (6) ERISA Litigation; and (7) PBGC Counseling and Controversy. With its office centrally located in Washington, DC, and armed with an "inside the Beltway" team that includes former senior IRS and DOL officials, the firm routinely helps its clients navigate Washington bureaucracy and successfully resolve issues before they develop into costly legal problems.
