Dodi is an employee benefits lawyer and more than a 20 year partner with Reed Smith. In this capacity, she represents local, national, and multinational corporations. Her work encompasses the full range of employee benefits matters with respect to executive compensation, separation pay, retirement, savings, welfare and cafeteria plans.
Dodi's more than 35 years of experience began shortly after the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA") was passed in September 1974. In addition to ERISA, her areas of concentration include US and international plan design; IRS, DOL, and PBGC compliance; benefit claims and other dispute resolution; benefits issues in corporate and employment transactions; labor negotiations; reductions in force; QDROs; executive employment contracts and separation agreements; retiree medical programs; and specialized benefit trusts. Welfare plan experience includes cafeteria plans, COBRA, HIPAA, and domestic partner issues.
She also has extensive experience representing plan sponsors and administrators in navigating IRS, DOL, and PBGC audits and correction programs.
Dodi regularly speaks on a number of employee benefits topics, including for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, and co-authors many Reed Smith client alerts, which can be found at www.reedsmith.com.
