Tim has extensive experience with plan-level investment manager search and ongoing due diligence, fiduciary governance, analysis of M&A and divestiture transaction impact on retirement plans for public and closely-held employers, and the treatment of international employees in coordination with global retirement plan benefits. He advises clients concerning investigations and operational corrections under the United States Department of Labor Voluntary Fiduciary Correction Program (VFCP) and the Internal Revenue Service Voluntary Correction Program (VCP).
