Hillary C. Webb


Corporations and benefit plan sponsors need professionals to help them navigate the complex legal landscape surrounding executive compensation arrangements and Employee Retirement Income Security Act compliance. With a depth of experience, Hillary C. Webb guides her clients to provide top-of-market retirement, incentive, and welfare benefits to their executives and employees while working to ensure compliance with the nuances of ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code, and the Affordable Care Act.

Hillary’s practice focuses on advising employers and plan sponsors on a wide range of employee benefits and executive compensation issues in both corporate transactions and general compliance. She advises clients that sponsor all types of qualified retirement plans, including multiemployer plans, church plans, governmental plans, 401(k) defined contribution plans, defined benefit pension plans, and more. Hillary’s health and welfare practice includes working with clients on compliance with COBRA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the ACA, and provisions of ERISA and the IRC that impact health and welfare arrangements. She also counsels clients on designing, drafting, and implementing group health plans, including cafeteria plans, health savings accounts, flexible spending accounts, health reimbursement arrangements, and voluntary employees’ beneficiary associations.

Hillary has handled issues for companies relating to ERISA fiduciary duties, government investigations, plan design, investments of plan assets, creation of cybersecurity and other plan policies, and periodic filings for tax-exempt plans.

In addition to Hillary’s traditional ERISA/employee benefits compliance practice, she regularly handles benefits and executive compensation issues in corporate transactions, including those that involve Sections 280G and 4999 of the IRC relating to golden parachute payments as well as issues under Section 409A.

Hillary is an associate in the firm’s Washington, D.C., office and a member of its Tax, Corporate, Health Care, and Labor and Employment groups. Prior to joining the firm, she practiced at a boutique employee benefits firm in Washington.
