Seyfarth Employee Benefits Partner Andrew Douglass is serving on the faculty of PwC’s fourth annual Law Firm Pension and Retirement Plans Briefing, on dealing with key decisions affecting strategies, operations, IRS limits and funding.
There is no shortage of challenges when it comes to implementing and maintaining retirement plans at law firms. Whether navigating complex IRS rules, developing appropriate investment policies, or ensuring fairness across generations of partners, all firms are faced with tough decisions that affect how they operate their plans. Many of these decisions will be culturally driven and reflect the inner fabric of the particular firm, while others may be economically driven and simply a sign of the times. 
At the same time, merger activity among law firms is at an all-time high. Pension plans are often at the center of any prolonged merger discussions. It is important to understand potential pitfalls and how to avoid them.
The panel will provide foundational knowledge on how they have tackled many of these issues, along with a discussion of the relevant decision factors. The Briefing will help you understand the range of options available and which may be a best fit for your firm in a changing environment.
