ERISA Litigation


Our first priority is to provide you with the legal counsel that will keep your retirement plan compliant with the highly technical Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). Nonetheless, ERISA is fraught with the potential for litigation, and our attorneys have successfully defended plans, fiduciaries, sponsors, boards and trustees in the trial courts, as well as in administrative proceedings before the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, the US Department of Labor and other agencies. This complex area of the law prompts high-value claims, including class actions, in a broad array of issues that include breach of fiduciary duty, valuation, fees, stock drops, age discrimination, as well as claims that grow out of fund terminations, multi-employer funds and mergers. In all these matters, experience often is the deciding factor in obtaining successful resolutions in this challenging area of the law. Our ERISA litigation team is led by attorneys with decades of deep experience in ERISA, including setting up and administering all types of benefit plans for public and private companies, as well as private equity funds.
