Cher E. Wynkoop has joined Willcox Savage as a partner in its Employee Benefits Group. Cher was formerly the Deputy Practice Group Leader for Reed Smith in Pittsburgh. She has more than 13 years of experience helping clients design, implement and maintain complex employee benefits programs, including retirement, health and welfare and executive compensation programs. She also regularly counsels clients on complicated ERISA issues related to mergers, acquisitions, collective bargaining agreements and retiree health plans. Cher's clients include both tax-exempt and for-profit entities.

Recently, Cher represented a publicly traded financial institution and a large manufacturer in connection with complex acquisitions. In the course of those engagements she designed and negotiated a substantial number of executive employment and separation agreements, designed a cash incentive program, and handled the merger and integration of several union and nonunion tax-qualified retirement programs.

Other recent representative engagements include the design and implementation of a new Code 403(b) program for a large healthcare system which helped them replace a costly defined benefit plan with new executive retirement plans.

Cher received her J.D. and an LL.M. in Taxation from Capital University and her undergraduate degree from the United States Air Force Academy. She is a retired Air Force Captain.
