On June 14, 2022, Law360 highlighted Hirschler’s addition of Robert Saffelle as a benefits and executive compensation partner in Richmond.
Saffelle shared with Law360 that Hirschler was a natural move for him and that he is excited to work with his new colleagues, many of whom he had already worked with in the past. “This practice fits very well with mine,” he said. “Hirschler has a robust corporate and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) practice, which is compatible with my practice and supports my work. It’s a great firm with great people and lawyers, and good clients.”
Saffelle counsels businesses of all sizes on all aspects of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), which spans a wide range of issues, including the challenges that can arise in the context of a merger or acquisition. In those cases, Saffelle helps converging businesses to address inherited business plans and ensure they are both legal and operating properly.
“Because the firm does so many deals, M&A is an ongoing source of work that supplements the clients I have and brought over,” Saffelle said. “A strong business department translates into astrong, supportive ERISA practice.”
