At The Podium
Using bread crumbs to avoid litigation
Employer-sponsors of retirement plans and retirement plan fiduciaries are under more scrutiny than ever before, with more and more disputes making their way to the courtroom. Speaking at the 2017 Pension Focus Conference in Branson, Missouri, McAfee & Taft ERISA lawyer Brandon Long reviews recent court cases impacting qualified retirement plans, uncovers the trail of “bread crumbs” and other clues that often lead to disputes, and discusses the lessons to be learned from such lawsuits. The presentation also includes a review of fiduciary duties and discussions of best practices for avoiding litigation and making preparations to defend plan decisions.
Sponsored by Pension Consultants, Inc., the Pension Focus Conference provides plan sponsors, administrators, accountants and record-keepers with current information about retirement plans, including new IRS and DOL rules and regulations, and economic updates.
