A successful defense begins with smart strategy

Our dedicated group of nationally renowned and respected ERISA litigators handles the full spectrum of ERISA lawsuits across the U.S., including many high-stakes, complex class action lawsuits. Our clients include plan sponsors, plans, fiduciaries, trustees, directed trustees and plan service providers. Our zealousness in defending them is matched only by our creativity in resolving the claims asserted against them and our lawyers have prevailed in many landmark decisions on behalf of our clients. But we are equally proud of the many instances in which we strategize creative means to resolve claims against our clients, swiftly and on terms favorable to them.

Our teams of lawyers practice almost exclusively in the ERISA litigation field. We have collectively addressed virtually every significant litigation-related issue that has arisen since the statute was enacted.

We have also represented our clients in numerous investigations by the Department of Labor and other agencies, which have frequently served to avert lawsuits against our clients.
