Benefit Plans & Fiduciary

Strength in numbers

Employers increasingly face lawsuits and regulatory challenges over benefits options they offer employees.

Our attorneys have successfully handled the wide array of claims you may face including claims under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), cases of alleged errors or omissions, improper denial of plan benefits and suits for breach of fiduciary duty. We regularly represent plan fiduciaries and their underwriting insurers in cases brought by plan participants, the Department of Labor and the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation.

Our attorneys and securities consultants handle cases throughout the country claiming improper denial or change (especially reduction) of pension or welfare benefits, administrative error, improper advice or counsel, wrongful termination of a plan, failure to adequately fund a plan, prohibited transactions, failure to make required plan contributions, conflict of interest, imprudent investment of assets or lack of investment diversity, imprudent choice of insurance company or mutual fund, or third-party plan administrator or other service provider. We are highly expert in representing employers facing demands for payment of multi-employer pension plan contributions.

Our experienced attorneys ensure you will have industry knowledge and courtroom expertise to defend the inevitable challenge over your 401(k), profit-sharing plan or employee stock option plan (ESOP), defined benefit plan, or welfare plans such as health, accident or disability plans. FMG attorneys will evaluate your case promptly and give you the ability to resolve a case early or, if needed, to vindicate your position before a judge or jury.
