Biography

Bruce Jocz has more than 25 years of experience in the employee benefit and executive compensation arena. This experience allows him to provide clients, with not only a legal perspective, but also a business and risk analysis prospective. He knows and understands the views of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Department of Labor (DOL) on various employee benefit and executive compensation issues and uses that knowledge in assisting clients in making prudent business decisions.

As a former accountant, Bruce understands how business decisions related to employee benefits and executive compensation affects a client’s bottom line or business transactions and always includes such knowledge in his counsel to clients.

He has been on both sides of numerous transactions, buying and selling, which allows him to understand the perspective of both purchasers and sellers. This understanding allows him to negotiate and counsel the side he represents in a manner which keeps the employee benefit and executive compensation issues from being a major hurdle in closing a transaction.
