NETWORK SECURITY & PRIVACY LIABILITY (CYBER) INSURANCE

The crux of the attorney client relationship is confidentiality, and your clients rely on this privacy regarding their information before, during and after litigation scenarios. Law firms are major targets for bad actors seeking to obtain sensitive client information such as trade secrets, medical information, insider information about mergers and acquisitions activity and more.

EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES LIABILITY INSURANCE

RISK MANAGEMENT

Without discussing relevant best practices and constantly reviewing your internal policies and procedures as a firm, insurance is only as good as the paper on which it is written. In addition to negotiating insurance programs for all sizes of firms, we also provide internal reviews of calendaring procedures, conflicts management, engagement letters and other internal policies and procedures required to avoid costly issues of misrepresentation or negligence.

EMPLOYEE BENEFITS

DISABILITY CONTRACTS

AHT’S professionals are highly experienced at analyzing and structuring firms’ disability contracts to ensure common pitfalls are avoided when a disabling event occurs. Our team walks through disability contracts and helps answer common questions firms need to be aware of such as:

t

Is your contract an “and” or an “or” contract?

t

What is your “own occupation” period vs. your “any occupation” period?

t

What is the taxability of the premium or payout?

HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNTS

Selecting the appropriate plan design for each employee is a challenge, but our industry-leading team will help guide you in the decision-making process. Our experience and in-depth knowledge helping law firms communicate and roll out a consumer-driven health plan, in conjunction with a Health Savings Account (HSA), helps ensure a smooth implementation.

But, implementation is just the beginning. Understanding the mechanics of an HSA and the value it brings, especially with its unique tax advantages and catch-up funding contributions available for employees over 55, is even more important. As part of the implementation, we’ll help you educate employees about the plan and its advantages.

 

ELECTRONIC BENEFITS ADMINISTRATION & COMMUNICATION STRATEGIES

Employee benefits administration can be time consuming and inefficient. Our experienced professionals regularly analyze processes and develop solutions to help human resources teams manage their time, work more effectively and clearly communicate the benefits program to employees.

Using a paper system? We can help you move from a paper-based system to an online or mobile experience for the enrollment process. Not only is this more eco-friendly, but it streamlines the process and makes the benefits materials more accessible to both employees and administrators. Worried about choosing a solution? We have unique relationships with many of the vendors and can help your firm find the right solution.
