Alston & Bird’s ERISA Litigation Group is ranked by Chambers as one of the leading in the nation. Chambers has recently said of the practice group: "This dedicated unit is home to a group of knowledgeable and determined ERISA litigators who are equally comfortable advising on the esoteric details of ERISA law as they are fighting for a client in the courtroom" and “the group inspires confidence in its clients who use this ‘firm of choice’ time and time again.” Chambers also noted that clients consider Alston & Bird “a good choice for significant cases.” Alston & Bird’s ERISA Litigation Group was also recently ranked Tier One by Best Lawyers in America for National – ERISA Litigation.
