Pension Plan & ERISA Litigation
Employees and retirees throughout the United States are increasingly concerned about their pension and retirement benefits. After building a "nest egg" for their families and themselves, many people have lost their pension plans, or have been shortchanged in what they have received.
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) provides protection for employees and retirees in pension plans and 401k plans. It places the highest duty under the law — called a fiduciary duty — on the employer or plan sponsor to carefully guard the assets of participants in a pension plan or 401k plan. It also provides a remedy to employees or groups of employees who have lost money because of a violation of that duty.
We have a team of dedicated professionals with expertise successfully handling major cases involving pension plans, 401k, and ERISA litigation.
We are representing employees and retirees who have been wrongfully shortchanged in their pension plans or 401k plans. Even a small amount of money not properly credited to an employee's account can produce a substantial loss of benefits when compounded over years or decades.
