Employee Benefits & ERISA

Practice Group Chair: David R. Johanson

The Employee Benefits & ERISA group at Hawkins Parnell Thackston & Young LLP brings extraordinary depth in perspective in advising on matters arising in connection with Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) plans, and in defending shareholder, employment and benefits litigation throughout the country. Our attorneys handle diverse issues ranging from mainstream benefit claims litigation to complex class actions involving employee ownership plan (ESOP) valuations, and breach of ERISA fiduciary complaints involving the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) or private litigants. We draw upon this breadth of experience to provide clients comprehensive and cost-effective services nationwide from offices in California, New York, Texas, and Georgia.

We represent employers, insurers, plans, sponsors, fiduciaries, trustees, shareholders, plan administrators and third-party administrators (TPAs) in federal courts and government regulatory proceedings before the DOL and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

In recent years, there has been an explosion in ERISA and employee benefits related litigation, DOL investigations, and IRS audits. We provide, sophisticated preventive strategies aimed to limit risk exposure in our counseling efforts and aggressive defense for achieving a cost effective resolution in matters that have escalated to litigation.
