  • ERISA Claims and Disputes

    ERISA law, to quote one Ninth Circuit judge, is a “dizzying array of acronyms” involving a “complex web of interrelated” statutes.  Our attorneys have the technical knowledge coupled with decades of experience in representing clients in ERISA matters to resolve your matters effectively and efficiently.  In ERISA controversies, we represent employers and other plan sponsors, fiduciaries, plan service providers (i.e., consultants, actuaries, third party administrators, attorneys and accountants), welfare plan sponsors and insurers, and investment managers.

    We offer representation in a wide array of ERISA disputes, including:

    • Claims for breach of fiduciary duty
    • Benefits claims by participants
    • Family law related ERISA matters, including review of qualified domestic relation orders
    • Consultation regarding litigation of all aspects of compensation, retirement plan, and health and welfare plan issues
    • Representation before the IRS Appeals Office and Department of Labor’s administrative law judges
    • Representation with respect to arbitration and mediation  of ERISA claims and disputes
    • Pre-litigation counsel to bankruptcy trustees, attorneys, creditors, and debtors regarding benefits issues for qualified and nonqualified retirement plans and welfare plans
    • Co-counseling with trial attorneys where ERISA expertise is needed

    We recognize that litigation can be both costly and a drain on management time.  Therefore, we attempt to utilize negotiation, mediation and alternative dispute resolution techniques when appropriate.  We also work with clients to proactively minimize litigation exposure.
