Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation

Rimon’s Employee Benefits attorneys handle a comprehensive range of issues concerning employee and executive compensation, benefit plans and arrangements. We assist our clients in developing and retaining a productive workforce at reasonable costs.

Our lawyers have counseled companies ranging in size from start-ups to Fortune 500 corporations. For most of our clients, regardless of their size, human capital is their most valuable asset. And in today’s competitive job market, few features better retain and attract employees than the right compensation and benefits programs. Choosing the right program, however, is complex since it requires engagement with federal and state laws, regulations, court decisions, and unexpected entanglements.
