We have considerable experience in shareholder litigation, against public companies and their executives and independent accounting firms, concerning financial reporting issues, state statutory and common law claims, as well as securities law claims. Through such representations, we have developed substantial relationships with forensic accountants, economists, valuation experts and other specialists whose services are typically required to achieve favorable results.
We have handled a variety of litigation involving pension and welfare plans, including both single and multi-employer plans, in defending against claims made by the Department of Labor (DOL), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC), among others. These matters often include claims of fiduciary breach, prohibited transactions, alienation of benefits, plan service provider malpractice, withdrawal liability and disputed benefit claims. Our attorneys in this area are full-time ERISA lawyers who devote their full attention to matters involving the complex ERISA statute, giving them an edge over full-time litigators with only limited experience with ERISA issues.
