ERISA Litigation


The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is one of the nation’s most complex pieces of legislation. At the same time, retirement benefits account for a significant portion of employers’ personnel-related expenditures. Consequently, ERISA disputes are among the most frequently litigated and financially risky areas of employee benefits law. To minimize the likelihood of disputes and to quickly resolve cases in a manner that reduces or eliminates potential liabilities, clients need legal advisors with deep and diverse experience in the application of this often misunderstood law.
