Trucker Huss, APC is pleased to announce Clarissa Kang will present at the Palo Alto Area Bar Association (PAABA) meeting on November 15, 2016 on “Avoiding Malpractice: What You Need To Know About ERISA”.
The co-presentation with Cassie Springer Ayeni will cover potential malpractice situations and the penalties that can result. The presentation is well suited for in-house counsel, business counsel, civil rights litigators, employment counsel, and solo and small firm owners who may find ERISA issues cropping up in their practice and/or in their own firms.
Clarissa has handled a broad spectrum of employee benefits litigation, including cases involving benefit claims, fiduciary issues, plan administration, multiemployer plans, withdrawal liability, delinquent contributions, plan reimbursement and subrogation, non-ERISA benefit plans (such as governmental plans and church plans), and class action claims. In addition to serving as an advocate in active litigation, Clarissa advises and represents retirement plans, health and welfare plans, and plan fiduciaries in investigations and agency actions commenced by the U.S. Department of Labor, the Internal Revenue Service, and U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. Taking a practical and thoughtful approach, Clarissa provides advice and support to plan fiduciaries in their determination of benefit claims and appeals. With an eye for detail, she negotiates investment management and service provider agreements on behalf of plans and their fiduciaries.
