ERISA Litigation Overview
We represent retirement plans, plan fiduciaries, and plan participants in employee benefit litigation filed under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act “ERISA.”
ERISA is the federal statute that governs most retirement benefit plans such as pension plans, 401(k) plans, and profit sharing plans. We advise our clients to retain ERISA counsel early, before litigation has commenced, to ensure the benefits claim process is handled properly and corrective actions are taken to mitigate damages.
ERISA litigation is often technical, complex, and specific to the precise plan document language, benefit calculations, or employment history of the participant involved. We focus our litigation efforts on the technical aspects of ERISA and we strive for the most efficient and globally successful outcome.
