In the ever-changing landscape of Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)/Employee Benefits, the stakes are high and the issues complex. Because of our experience and deep knowledge of the field, individuals and entities rely on our team to represent them in litigation over alleged nonpayment of benefits and breaches of fiduciary duties.
Our ERISA/Employee Benefits practice is devoted to defending fully insured and self-insured welfare plans, pension plans, plan administrators, plan sponsors, employers, fiduciaries, third-party administrators, insurance agencies, trustees, benefit associations, insurance companies and plan participants. The diversity of our practice allows us to understand the interests of all parties to the employee benefits relationship.
Our attorneys have obtained favorable rulings at the trial and appellate levels, negotiated favorable settlements, successfully resolved cases through mediation, and negotiated consent decrees with the Department of Labor (DOL).
Our expansive ERISA/Employee Benefits Litigation practice includes:
We believe it is important for employee benefit clients to maintain a proactive approach to employee benefits litigation issues. We actively guide plan sponsors and administrators through the administrative claim level and in litigation. We are frequent speakers at seminars on ERISA litigation and attend national ERISA litigation seminars.
