The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) provides a framework governing many relationships a company has with regard to its benefit plans—both retirement (as in the name of ERISA), but also welfare benefits such as severance, short-term disability, and health plans. When disputes arise, ERISA often governs or influences the company’s obligations and options. ERISA claims can be very difficult to manage—involving ongoing employee relations, executive involvement, potential class actions, and high stakes.
While we aim to prevent lawsuits through proactive employee benefits counsel and advice, our experienced team is equipped to prosecute or defend these claims when necessary. We help companies successfully navigate the claims, litigation, settlement, and claim recovery process for a variety of claims, including claims for benefits, over-payment matters, breaches of fiduciary duty, interference with benefit rights, and more.
