Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation

LEADERSHIP: David M. Kaplan

At many law firms, compensation and benefits are ancillary services. But not at Pepper Hamilton. Our practice is perceived by many clients as a “destination” for solutions to complex problems in these areas.

Our practice is staffed by lawyers recognized as leaders in their field. We are thoroughly integrated with our colleagues in allied practice areas (corporate/securities, labor/employment, tax, etc.), so that we can offer a boutique service experience supported by the resources of an AMLAW 100 firm. 

Our practice includes lawyers with backgrounds in actuarial science, compensation consulting, public accounting and plan administration. We therefore understand the context of your problems and are able to work effectively with your other advisors and vendors to develop solutions. Because we are sensitive to financial reporting requirements, investor relations issues and market developments, you can count on us for advice that is both correct as a matter of law and useful in practice. 

Most of all, we pride ourselves on being responsive, trusted advisors who are as comfortable interacting with your actuary as we are with your CEO. 


Our clients reflect a diverse mix of business sizes and types, but share at least one characteristic: the need for responsive, reliable and practical legal advice. Please contact us for a list of current engagements or references.
