The Depth to Defend a High Volume of Nuanced Claims
The employee benefits/ERISA litigation arena is dynamic and complex. Navigating this landscape quickly and efficiently is vital to managing costs and mitigating risk. Saul Ewing’s Employee Benefits & ERISA Litigation Group has defended hundreds of cases involving group and individual disability, health, accidental death and disability, and life insurance benefits for insurers, employers, benefit plans and fiduciaries in state and federal courts throughout the United States.
With dozens of experienced attorneys, our team leverages efficiencies and cost-effective measures, including alternative fee arrangements, to quickly assess the merits and value of these cases and advise on whether they should be settled, litigated to summary judgment, or tried. We have a deep understanding of not only the law, but also the players in the field. We know the plaintiffs’ counsel who frequently bring these cases within our firm’s footprint and nationwide, and utilize that knowledge to deliver value-added advice and strategy.
Our attorneys regularly present at conferences on cutting-edge topics in the field, such as 502(a)(3) claims, the scope of discovery, recovering overpayments, and evolving DOL regulations.
We serve as lead regional counsel to a large group life and disability benefits insurer and one of our litigators serves as its in-house counsel on a part-time basis managing group employee benefits cases throughout the country, affording our team deep experience and a client-centric perspective on employee benefits/ERISA litigation matters as this area continues to change.
