ERISA at 45: Retirement Plan Litigation

In our fifth installment of ERISA at 45, Chicago partner Kim Jones speaks with Sarah Bassler Millar, Chicago partner and Chair of Drinker Biddle’s Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Group, about the considerable increase in 401(k) litigation and the increased pressure on plan performance; excessive fee lawsuits and the three ERISA cases to watch before the U.S. Supreme Court this term; and the focus employers should place on prudent decision-making to reduce plan sponsor liability, especially in light of high-dollar amounts in settlements.
