King & Spalding’s Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) litigation team defends leading companies in complex employee benefit disputes throughout the United States. Our ERISA litigation lawyers have deep experience defending class actions involving investment choices, “excessive” fees, and allegations of self-dealing in 401(k) and other retirement plans. We regularly represent clients facing multiemployer withdrawal liability claims, novel health and welfare benefit disputes, and Department of Labor investigations.
Our ERISA litigation team sets itself apart by offering practical advice in plain English and achieving decisive results. We frequently litigate ERISA cases of first impression. And we work closely with our Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation, Tax, and Healthcare teams to manage the risks associated with providing and administering employee benefits programs in a highly-regulated and litigious business environment.
