ERISA litigation has exploded in recent years as class action attorneys seek to add to or end-run related securities cases. The economic downturn generated an onslaught of ERISA "stock drop" and "excessive fees" lawsuits against essentially every surviving public financial company (and even against some that did not or may not survive).
For years, KMK has combined the substantive knowledge and extensive experience of our Employees Benefits Group with our Litigation Group in its ERISA Litigation Defense Team. This interdisciplinary approach helps provide the most effective team for often overlapping claims, as well as providing efficient, top-quality capabilities for each aspect of these claims. Our ERISA Litigation Defense Team handles all types of breach of fiduciary duty, prohibited transaction, and denial of benefits disputes—from individualized claims for long term disability, severance, or other benefits to class action claims involving company stock and investment management.
The ERISA Litigation Defense Team has particularized experience and a proven track record to efficiently defend "stock drop" and "excessive fees" litigation.
