Litigation involving employee benefits matters can be costly to employee morale as well as a company’s bottom line.
With significant experience in the ongoing administration and operation of benefit plans, and extensive experience as ERISA counselors, we provide a real-world understanding of the unique issues presented by benefit plan litigation, as well as the possible application of employment, tax, healthcare, insurance, and financial compliance considerations.
We provide up-front counseling to prevent and resolve benefits disputes as quickly and efficiently as possible. Clients rely on our team for pragmatic representation on a range of employee benefit litigation matters (including both ERISA and non-ERISA), involving pension and welfare benefit plans, insured and self-funded plans, and fiduciary and compliance issues. We frequently work with our deep bench of ERISA tax and compliance lawyers to accomplish client objectives.
Our benefits litigation team defends clients in large multi-plaintiff and class action cases brought under ERISA; including class actions relating to fiduciary issues, pension plans, health plans, severance plans, and employee benefit issues arising from mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.
