A Publication from Epstein Becker Green
and The ERISA Industry Committee

Epstein Becker Green and The ERISA Industry Committee ("ERIC") are pleased to present the current issue of the Benefits Litigation Update ("Update"). The Update is a publication which provides two primary components:

  1. Featured Articles addressing trends or topics currently being discussed in the benefits community which (i) explain why the topic is important, (ii) explain the impact of the topic on the reader, and (iii) propose some action that should be considered in response; and
  2. A select Case Summary involving noteworthy benefits litigation.

We have partnered with ERIC in this endeavor and thank them for all their work on this issue and the upcoming FocusOn call on January 29 at 2 pm (EDT).
