Henderson Franklin Welcomes Employee Benefits Attorney David Ledermann

Henderson, Franklin, Starnes & Holt, P.A., is pleased to announce that attorney David Ledermann has joined the firm’s Business & Tax Department. He will be based out of the Fort Myers office.

Ledermann brings a depth and range of expertise informed by twenty-plus years of experience in the employee benefits field. His representations involve tax-qualified retirement plans and nonqualified deferred compensation arrangements, as well as group health plans and other employer-provided welfare benefit plans. He addresses benefits issues from plan design, drafting and implementation to dealing with the complexities of benefits programs in the context of business mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations and other transactions.

A significant part of Ledermann’s practice involves advising clients concerning compliance with the myriad complexities of the two principal federal laws affecting the provision of employee benefits, ERISA (the Employee Retirement Income Security Act) and the Internal Revenue Code. He is well versed in the requirements and application to employers of the Affordable Care Act. Ledermann also assists organizations with the recruitment and retention of executive and managerial talent through various forms of deferred compensation arrangements. As necessary, he represents clients before government agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service, the United States Department of Labor and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.

Ledermann attended Oakland University (B.S., magna cum laude) and Michigan State University (M.S., Physics) before earning his J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, and subsequently, an advanced degree from the University of Miami School of Law (LL.M., Taxation). He is admitted to practice in Florida, Pennsylvania and Michigan. He may be reached at 239-344-1192 or by email at david.ledermann@henlaw.com
