60+ Years of Benefits Experience

Today’s employers must regularly assess and adjust their employee benefit plans to remain competitive and help recruit and retain a highly qualified workforce. For more than 60 years, Felhaber Larson has provided employers and trustees with the experienced legal counsel and quality technical expertise they need to ensure their employee benefits programs meet their current and future requirements.
