Retirement Benefits/ERISA Class Action Litigation

Squitieri & Fearon often represents employees, retirees, and beneficiaries who have lost some or all of their retirement savings by investing in their employer’s stock through a company-sponsored retirement plan.  Because we all depend so heavily on our retirement savings, the law places a high burden on fiduciaries of such plans to ensure they are administered properly. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”) governs the conduct of companies that sponsor employee benefit plans and the persons who administer, manage, and oversee those plans. Because of our experience and success handling these types of complex cases, courts have appointed us to lead many nation- wide class actions, including cases on behalf of participants in retirement plans such as 401(k)s, ESOPs, and Stock Purchase Plans.

If you have lost money in your retirement plan or believe that you’ve been the victim of fiduciary breaches, please contact us.
