Trucker Huss has a large and sophisticated ERISA litigation practice. When litigation is required on behalf of our clients, we provide substantial experience and expertise gained through more than 35 years of active ERISA litigation, including trial and appellate experience.
We also actively aid our clients in avoiding litigation if possible by assisting with the administrative processing of benefit claims and using alternative dispute resolution and other techniques to resolve matters on a pre-litigation basis.

- Institutional fiduciaries (banks and trust and mutual fund companies)
- Investment managers and investment consultants to plans

- Benefits claims by participants
- Claims for breach of fiduciary duty (such as investment losses, employer stock matters, plan governance and other administration issues, prohibited transactions and ESOP valuation issues)
