Goodwin’s Boston-based ERISA litigation practice is currently engaged in significant class actions for plan sponsors, which concern the usage of proprietary funds in their investment strategies – a rapidly developing trend in ERISA litigation. Typical clients for practice head James Fleckner and Alison Douglass in this space are sourced from the asset management, healthcare and financial services sectors. High-profile insurance entities are counted on the client roster, which retain the team for disputes concerning loan practices and the pay out of lifetime insurance benefits. Fleckner and Jack Cleary are also handling a suite of stock-drop cases, including unique allegations concerning the mismanagement of failed ESOP plans. The team also enjoys a steady stream of mandates involving excessive fee charges and challenges to the denial of retirement health benefits.
