Dylan practices in the firm’s ERISA litigation practice group, which is ranked in the first tier nationally by the U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings. He represents plan sponsors and fiduciaries in a wide range of employee benefit cases, including complex ERISA class action lawsuits involving 401(k) and 403(b) defined contribution plans and Employee Stock Ownership Plans (“ESOPs”); cases involving individual claims for retirement and medical benefits; and claims for withdrawal liability and delinquent contributions involving multi-employer, “Taft-Hartley” pension plans. He is admitted to practice in all of the federal district courts located in California, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.

In addition to his litigation practice, Dylan counsels retirement plan sponsors and other fiduciaries on fiduciary best practices and risk mitigation, plan governance structure, service provider agreements, operational corrections, and regulatory compliance. He also represents retirement and health and welfare plan fiduciaries in investigations and agency actions brought by the United States Department of Labor and Securities and Exchange Commission.

Dylan has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America “Ones to Watch” for Employee Benefits (ERISA) Law since 2021 (its inception), and Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star” in Northern California since 2018.

Dylan has written articles and presented on a number of ERISA and employee benefits topics, including fiduciary best practices, cybersecurity, ESOP settlements, and the state of employer “stock drop” litigation.

Prior to joining Trucker Huss, Dylan’s practice concentrated on ERISA litigation, but also included private placement securities litigation, insurance bad faith, and entertainment law.
