Elena Kaplan

Elena Kaplan advises employers with respect to providing employee benefits and designing compensation structures in compliance with applicable laws, including ERISA and the Internal Revenue Code. She provides advice on all manner of benefits, including health and welfare benefits, qualified retirement plans, nonqualified deferred compensation plans, and severance. She assists employers in all phases of providing benefits from plan design to implementation, ongoing compliance, and plan termination.

At present, the majority of Elena's practice involves assisting employers with addressing the new requirements under the Affordable Care Act, including updating plans to comply with new mandates and providing guidance about the new world of health benefits under the upcoming "play or pay" rules for employers. She also has extensive experience advising covered entities regarding the HIPAA Privacy and Security requirements. In addition, Elena devotes a portion of her practice to the formation and ongoing compliance of non-profit entities, including filing for and maintaining tax-exempt status.

Elena currently serves on the board of governors of the State Bar of Georgia, the board of directors of the Georgia Legal Services Program, and the board of trustees of the Georgia Client Security Fund. She previously served as president of the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia.
