Employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) are a valuable tool for attracting and retaining employees as well as providing a tax-advantaged vehicle for financing ongoing business activities — but they require experience in a wide range of legal specialties. Our lawyers are dedicated to guiding you through the complexities of ESOPs. Collaborating across disciplines, including corporate law, corporate finance, employment law, securities regulation, financial services, litigation and tax law, we address all plan aspects from transactions, to administration and compliance, to fiduciary analysis, to litigation. We advise and represent public and private companies, individual and institutional trustees, employee-owned companies, lenders, selling shareholders and entities purchasing or investing in employee-owned companies. And we provide guidance in ESOP-related transactions as well as any government investigations or audits.
