Gregg advises clients on federal laws and regulations governing employee benefit plans and executive compensation arrangements.

He has extensive experience advising clients on fiduciary standards under ERISA and tax qualification requirements under the Code; and drafting plans, committee charters, investment policy statements and executive compensation arrangements. He occasionally assists other attorneys in ERISA litigation.
