K.C. concentrates his practice on executive compensation, employee benefits and tax matters. Prior to joining Barack Ferrazzano, he was a senior tax and employee benefits associate in the National Tax Department of Ernst & Young, LLP. During his time there, K.C. assisted clients with a wide range of compensation and tax related activities, such as the review and examination of employee retirement, health and welfare, and executive compensation plans and agreements, including tax planning, compliance and operational analysis. He has experience conducting comprehensive reviews of qualified retirement plans, including pension, 401(k) and profit sharing plans for Fortune 150 companies to ensure compliance with the IRS or DOL and avoid potential audits, as well as examining non-qualified deferred compensation plan documents for compliance with IRS code, including Section 409A. In addition, K.C. has conducted pension governance audits to assess whether plan sponsors have properly discharged fiduciary duties under ERISA Title I.

Along with his compensation and tax practice, K.C. dedicates his time on a pro bono basis preparing wills and power of attorney documents for Wills For Heroes Foundation, a program which provides essential legal documents free of charge to our nation’s first responders.
