Taylor English Expands Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation Practice Group With Addition Of Highly Acclaimed Atlanta Attorney/Consultant
Atlanta- September 6, 2011- Atlanta law firm Taylor English Duma LLP announces the addition of attorney Don Kohla as its newest member to the firm’s expanding Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation practice group. Joining Mr. Kohla is Jan Marsh, a senior consultant with over 25 years of experience in this area.
Mr. Kohla brings with him over 30 years of experience representing clients with mergers and acquisitions, employee benefit, and executive compensation plans. Don’s expertise on ERISA and ERISA-related matters coupled with his deep experience assisting, designing, and implementing all types of employee benefit plans has earned him some of the industry’s highest honors, including The Best Lawyers in America each year for over 25 years and Super Lawyer every year since its inception in Georgia. “With Don and Jan joining the group, we clearly have the depth and expertise to represent any client (big or small) in this area. We’re thrilled to have them as part of the team”, says Managing Partner Al B. Hill.
The decision to move their practice over to Taylor English was heavily influenced by the firms entrepreneurial business model, personality, and culture. “We were very impressed by the people, top to bottom”, says Kohla. “They’re genuine about being client focused, and their enthusiasm for creating a more collaborative law firm was contagious. Everyone we met walks-the-walk.” Both say they are eager to begin introducing their clients to the benefits of TE’s unique operating model. “We are re-energized by TE’s approach that focuses entirely on the client which means we can also be more flexible and cost efficient in designing engagements that work better for both sides”, says Marsh.
Kohla and Marsh join Taylor English from King & Spalding where they led the firm’s Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation practice group advising public, private, taxable and tax-exempt clients.
