Fisher Phillips Adds Employee Benefits Associate in Atlanta
ATLANTA (February 22, 2021) – Fisher Phillips, one of the country’s preeminent labor and employment law firms representing employers, announces the addition of Katharine Finley as an associate in the firm’s Atlanta office, expanding the firm’s Employee Benefits capabilities in the Southeast.
Finley joins from a local benefits-focused law firm where her practice centered on assisting clients with qualified retirement plans, nonqualified deferred compensation plans, equity and equity-based plans, health and welfare plans, and corporate transactions. At Fisher Phillips, she will work extensively with clients to address their employee benefits needs across the life of their employee benefit plans, including from plan adoption to plan termination.
