ERISA Litigation 2009

September 30, 2009 – October 2, 2009

Why You Should Attend:

ERISA litigation has been on the rise in part due to changes in financial markets. The stock of most financial and other U.S. companies has suffered significantly. With such losses has come a new wave of securities and 401(k) ERISA litigation. Suits involving 401(k) plans and other benefits have already resulted in large scale settlements and judgments. Additionally, the Supreme Court has addressed precedent-setting issues dealing with ERISA. It is therefore crucial to be apprised of the latest developments and understand how to prepare for the increasing threat of litigation.

At PLI's ERISA Litigation program, you will have the opportunity to hear from ERISA and Securities Litigation experts as well as from the Department of Labor about the latest issues.

What You Will Learn:

  • Practical, ethical and emerging issues arising from the threat of ERISA litigation, including settlement issues
  • Latest analysis of "stock drop" (securities) cases
  • The role of government litigation and subsequent regulatory and legislative reactions
  • Hear directly from the Department of Labor

Who Should Attend:

Attorneys and related professionals working in the area of qualified employee benefit plans, securities, and plan administration as well as in-house counsel who deal with these issues.
