Pension Litigation

Our Maryland and Washington DC trial lawyers represent sponsors, trustees, service providers, and employees in the investigation and litigation of retirement and benefit plan disputes. Complex federal regulations impose stringent duties upon those responsible for plan assets. Our pension attorneys are experienced in evaluating the compliance of trustees, consultants, advisors, and investment managers with standards of prudence and loyalty.

We also are experienced in prosecuting claims for restitution where failures to fulfill duties owed to a pension plan result in lost principal or investment return. In addition, our lawyers counsel sponsors and trustees on best practices in the areas of fiduciary duty compliance, selection and monitoring of consultants and money managers, and the emerging duty to investigate and rectify conflicts of interest on the part of service providers that may impair plan performance. In addition, we represent clients subject to investigation or audits by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, Department of Labor, Securities and Exchange Commission, and the IRS.

Our Bethesda, MD based pension lawyers assist clients in Maryland, Washington DC, and nationwide.
