Within: ERISA litigation

The practice at Proskauer Rose LLP comprises ‘extremely strong partners at the top and a very deep bench of ERISA litigators’, and is hailed as ‘simply the best of the best’. Led by Myron Rumeld, the team is well known for handling stock-drop, excessive fee and church plan cases. Recent work includes representing Princeton University in a suit alleging a breach of fiduciary duties in its recordkeeping fees, and Russell Hirschhorn and New Orleans-based Howard Shapiro - whose ‘folksy charm is backed by encyclopedic knowledge’ - successfully arguing a motion to dismiss on behalf of Wells Fargo, in a case alleging the client padded its 401(k) plan with overpriced and underperforming target-date funds affiliated with the bank. Also noteworthy is the group’s work for investment manager Neuberger Berman regarding allegations of prohibited self-dealing and breach of fiduciary obligations. Employee benefits specialist Ira Golub also assisted the team with regard to withdrawal liabilities issues arising from an action against client Renco Group. Other key contacts include senior counsel Stacey Cerrone in New Orleans and Deidre Grossman. Named individuals are based in New York unless otherwise indicated.
