ABA's 25th Annual National Institute on ERISA Litigation

Wednesday, May 13, 2015 - Thursday, May 14, 2015

Approaching ERISA from a litigation perspective, this program emphasizes the practical, not the theoretical.

This National Institute is designed for litigators who handle ERISA cases and want to enhance their substantive ERISA knowledge, and benefits practitioners who wish to further their knowledge of the substantive law and most recent case law. For ERISA specialists who draft plan language and render advice about plan administration, the program provides tips for minimizing litigation risk. Learn how to improve your client’s chances with pre-litigation strategies, including plan design features and plan administrative practices.

Partner Deborah Davidson, who co-chaired the event, presented on "Practical Considerations in Preparing for an ERISA Trial and Approaching Settlement in an ERISA Case" and "Hot Topics in ERISA Litigation: Key Cases of 2014 and Spring 2015" at this event.

Partner Christopher Boran participated "for the defendant" during the session on Fiduciary Investment Litigation.
