ERISA Litigation: What Have We Learned? - McDermott Will & Emery

ERISA Litigation: What Have We Learned?


Against a backdrop of increased litigation, workforce management challenges, and rising fiduciary insurance costs, the proper oversight and management of your company’s 401(k) plan has never been more important or more scrutinized.

Please join us Thursday, March 31 for a collaborative session with Mercer, the world’s largest outsourced asset manager, as we discuss how the retirement industry has responded to challenges defined contribution plan sponsors face around risk, governance and participant outcomes.

This session will cover:

  • Lessons learned from recent ERISA litigation and enforcement action, including the Supreme Court’s decision in the Northwestern University case
  • Key strategies for navigating the legal and regulatory issues faced by plan fiduciaries
  • Solutions designed to aid fiduciaries in their responsibilities and the industry shift to delegate much of this liability to a third party

Register today.
