CHICAGO (January 16, 2006) — McDermott Will & Emery partner John P. Hendrickson, head of the Firm's Employee Benefits Department, was selected by Inside the Minds' editorial board as a leader in employee benefits law and chosen to author portions of its recently released book Employee Benefits Law published by Aspatore Books (www.Aspatore.com).
Employee Benefits Law is an authoritative, insider’s perspective on one of the most significant areas in law and business today. Featuring chairs and partners of employee benefits law representing the United States' leading firms, the book offers a comprehensive overview of the changing landscape of the employee benefits realm and the strategies of successful practitioners for establishing and maintaining relevant benefits programs. The 10 attorneys in this book walk readers through the implications of important regulations including ERISA and Sarbanes-Oxley and offer tips for remaining in compliance. The book also addresses tax-advantaged planning in benefits programs and the increasing responsibilities of the fiduciaries who supervise them, as well as information on health and welfare plans, ESOPs, executive compensation and structuring benefits plans in transactions.
Mr. Hendrickson concentrates his practice on employee benefits and executive compensation. He serves as counsel to several of the United States’ largest corporations on all aspects of their employee benefit and executive compensation programs, particularly in the context of business transitions.
