About The Firm

Kenneth Haneline Keith Pryatel Cathryn Ensign

Ken began his career 32 years ago as the Tax Reform Act of 1986 was being introduced. Since then, Ken has developed a depth and breadth of experience in the employee benefits and taxation areas of the law that few other lawyers have achieved.

Throughout his career, Ken has used the combination of his law background and certified public accountant experience to represent and counsel employers on complicated employee benefit matters. He regularly represents clients in court, before the Internal Revenue Service, the U.S. Department of Labor and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.

Ken routinely guides employers in the designing and development of effective employee benefit plans, whether such plans involve qualified retirement and pension plans, non-qualified deferred compensation retirement plans, and welfare benefit plans such as group health, life, disability and others.
