DeCarlo & Shanley has approximately 30 years’ experience in counseling defined benefit and defined contribution plans in connection with ERISA. We have helped our clients establish private equity funds. Besides providing superior returns and diversification to most portfolios, the alternative investments sometime have a collateral benefit of job creation. Furthermore, we structured the partnership in a manner to protect the trustees by having the general partner agree to act as a QPAM and providing that the underlying investments in target companies will be exempt from the “plan asset” regulations.

DeCarlo & Shanley also specializes in several different practice areas including: employee benefits, labor, employment, real estate, litigation, and representing entities or individuals in government investigations.
