Within: ERISA litigation

The ERISA litigation practice at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLPmakes the experience of a class action lawsuit relatively painless’ and is led by Jeremy Blumenfeld and Brian Ortelere in Philadelphia and Deborah Davidson in Chicago. The team took over a stock-drop case brought against Pilgrim’s Pride claiming breach of fiduciary duties, and Ortelere dismissed a purported class action suit against AlliedBarton claiming wrongful discharge from employment to prevent plaintiffs receiving benefits. Blumenfeld represented Cigna and its subsidiary LINA in several suits relating to the alleged denial of long-term disability benefits. Other notable highlights included two putative ‘church plan’ cases on behalf of OSF, and New York’s Melissa Hill successfully dismissing a retiree medical case in connection with Weyerhaeuser’s termination of the plaintiffs’ medical benefits. Clients also recommend Christopher Boran, Chicago.
