ERISA litigation

Within: Leading lawyers

Paul Ondrasik - Steptoe & Johnson LLP

Within: ERISA litigation

Paul Ondrasik and Gwen Renigar lead the ERISA litigation practice at Steptoe & Johnson LLP. In recent highlights, Ondrasik secured a win for BP alongside Eric Serron and Morgan Hodgson in a longstanding stock-drop case which arose from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Other significant wins included defending clients such as American Express and Express Scripts against claims involving allegations of breach of fiduciary duties and ACA obligations as well as prohibited transactions. Republic Services also engaged the team to defend a fiduciary breach class action in relation to the management of an employee-owned company, the sale of the ESOP’s stock to a third party, and the investment and distribution of the sale proceeds in connection with the termination of the ESOP. All named individuals are based in Washington DC.

Paul Ondrasik - Steptoe & Johnson LLP

Within: Employee benefits, executive compensation and retirement plans: design

The ‘overall service is excellent’ at Steptoe & Johnson LLP, where the employee benefits and executive compensation lawyers are trusted ‘with the most significant matters in the field’. Clients such as trade associations, insurance companies and financial advisers appointed the group to advise on the regulatory landscape surrounding the term ‘fiduciary’, while health and welfare plan service providers engaged Melanie Nussdorf and Paul Ondrasik in Washington DC to respond to DOL investigations. Eric Serron, Edward Mackiewicz and Patrick Menasco are other names to note in the Washington DC office, as is ‘superb lawyer’ Morgan Hodgson. Public sector pension plan sub-team leader Don Wellington joined Reed Smith LLP in April 2018.
