Breakfast Forum: ERISA Litigation Update 2012/2013

  • Thursday, March 21, 2013
  • 7:30 AM - 9:30 AM
  • Hyatt Regency Irvine, 17900 Jamboree Road, Irvine


Registration is closed

Order in the Court!  Litigation is expensive and time-consuming, but the parties often leave the courthouse having learned some valuable lessons.  As spectators, the experiences reflected in the pages of the Federal Reporter are available for all to see, and we can use the cautionary tales they tell to minimize the risks to our clients as they navigate the complex and evolving requirements that apply to employee benefit plans.

ERISA has been a productive area for the courts in recent years, and 2012 did not mark a change in that regard.  To keep you up-to-date about developments in the courts during 2012, we will discuss the current hot topics in the benefits litigation world including:

  • the continued expansion of ERISA remedies under Amara,
  • ongoing challenges to company stock investments
  • plan investment practices relating to participant fees and costs, and
  • other emerging issues including some new risks for employers under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. 

Come join us as we discover a few new ways to help our clients avoid ending up on the wrong side of the "versus" in a case caption.

Doors open at 7:30 a.m. for check-in, breakfast and networking.  Our program will begin at 8:00 a.m. and this program will end at approximately 9:30 a.m.  The registration fee includes a full breakfast buffet and hosted parking in the self-parking lot at the Hyatt.

The reservation deadline for this event is Friday, March 15.
