Press release:

Cohen & Buckmann Named 'Trailblazers' in Employee Benefits Law in the October 2020 National Law Journal

Issued by: Cohen & Buckmann P.C.

Date: Oct. 20, 2020

NEW YORK (October 20, 2020)  Cohen & Buckmann, PC, a boutique employee benefits law firm, has garnered attention by ALM’s National Law Journal as a Trailblazer in the Elite Boutique category. Sandra Cohen and Carol Buckmann, the firm’s co-founding partners, were profiled in the Journal’s October 2020 issue.

Sandra and Carol co-founded Cohen & Buckmann in 2016 after recognizing that, even though their practice skill set is usually found at large Wall-street type law firms, many other firms also deserve sophisticated ERISA and compensation advice for their clients and transactions.  "We always deal with heavy tax issues, which differentiates us from other employment lawyers because executives are often compensated with deferred compensation, stock plans and more,” Sandra Cohen said. Cohen is also an adjunct professor at the New York University Law School, where she teaches classes on taxation of employee benefits. “It might not sound very sexy, but benefit plans are an essential aspect of employers of all sizes, with constantly changing rules. We work to simplify these highly complex areas.”

The boutique firm focusses on employer and employee relationships because this practice area is always evolving with numerous law changes, including legal developments and statutory changes throughout the 2020 pandemic. Innovations in health care, such as telemedicine, result in new areas of law affecting employee benefits. "We see continued changes in rules and business situations. Our firm remains committed to dealing with those challenges in practical and compliant ways," noted Carol Buckmann.  Buckmann also serves as President of the New York Chapter of Worldwide Employee Benefits (WEB-NY).

The firm has grown to six senior lawyers, with a full complement of services including: Executive Compensation (Section 409A advice on Deferred Compensation, Contracts, Equity-based Compensation), Employee Benefits, 401(k) Plans and Pensions, ERISA, Employment Law, Investment Adviser Law, Entrepreneurship, Corporate Law and Private Investments.
