Sullivan Ward’s well-known and growing public funds practice evidences our commitment to public sector employee benefits, pension, and health and welfare. We appreciate the opportunity to assist municipalities and their trustees in meeting their obligations to fund and secure employee benefits.

Our attorneys advise on fiduciary responsibility, domestic relations orders, disability and workers' compensation issues, service provider contract review and plan/benefit interpretation.

We work closely with clients and their employee representatives to draft trust documents, establish PA 149 retiree health plans, draft resolutions and board policies, obtain IRS determination letters, and otherwise provide the support and counsel needed in the administration of public pension and health and welfare funds, with the assurance that plans reflect the most recent requirements of state and federal law.
