Your ERISA litigation and compliance needs are diverse. A holistic strategy positions you for the best results for your company, its executives, board of directors, and trustees. Not just any ERISA practice can provide the full range of services you may need.
Alston & Bird is different. Unlike most ERISA practices, the lawyers on our team are both ERISA compliance practitioners and experienced trial lawyers.
We are the only major law firm in the country to have an attorney within its ERISA litigation group who is also a fellow of the Society of Actuaries. This uniquely positions us to represent clients facing litigation over actuarial equivalence issues. We integrate legal analysis with an understanding of the underlying actuarial, cost, funding, administration, and benefit design considerations, providing an edge in actuarial malpractice litigation, pension benefit litigation, and fiduciary and compliance audits.
Our team includes former prosecutors and government officials with strong relationships with the DOL, PBGC, and IRS. This inside perspective can benefit clients under investigation by the DOL or DOJ regarding civil and/or criminal violations of ERISA. Alston & Bird was named “Law Firm of the Year” in Litigation—ERISA in 2018 by U.S. News - Best Law Firms for the second time in three years, a distinction given annually to a single outstanding firm in each practice area.
We walk you through your most complicated ERISA litigation. Our track record in employer stock litigation is second to none, having handled more than 20 of these cases nationwide.
