ERISA/Employee Benefits Litigation

Our Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and employee benefits litigation team defends clients in class action suits, complex matters alleging breaches of fiduciary duties, and litigation related to health, welfare, and pension benefits. Our clients are plan sponsors, fiduciaries, service providers, custodians, insurers, and others involved in employee benefits plan and plan asset administration. We represent clients across many industries, including the financial services, insurance, governmental, retail, technology, telecommunications, transportation, aviation, manufacturing, and nonprofit sectors, including religiously affiliated entities.

Our litigators work side by side with lawyers who have experience with a host of US federal labor and employment laws, as well as state labor laws. We also collaborate frequently with securities and investment management lawyers on plan investment and regulatory issues that arise in employee benefits litigation. Morgan Lewis serves as approved fiduciary liability class action panel counsel for several major fiduciary liability insurance carriers, and carriers for whom we are not panel counsel often accept us as counsel.
