Jeremy Blumenfeld - Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP

Within: ERISA litigation

Not just ‘extremely knowledgeable, but also very responsive and good at thinking outside of the box’, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP is ‘simply the best’, according to one client. The ‘easy-to-work-with’ Brian Ortelere sits in the Philadelphia office and recently defended the University of Pennsylvania in a class action challenging the investment options offered by its 403(b) plan on the grounds of alleged breach of fiduciary duties. Chicago-based Sari Alamuddin and Melissa Hill in New York also worked with private universities in respective fiduciary putative class actions. On the health benefits front, Washington DC-based senior counsel Christopher Weals advised on the issue of vested right to lifetime retiree medical benefits. Jeremy Blumenfeld and Deborah Davidson are names to note in Philadelphia and Chicago respectively; they have recently represented clients in class actions involving allegations of breach of fiduciary duty, prohibited transactions and denial of lifetime vested retiree healthcare benefits. Clients also recommend Christopher Boran, who sits in Chicago.
