The World Series and Defending ERISA Litigation, two things that are synonymous with New York, New York in October. While World Series are almost impossible to come by (at least at a price we can afford), ACI still has seats available for its conference on Defending and Managing ERISA Litigation. This conference is the only conference devoted entirely to the defense of claims and is led by an unparalleled faculty of in-house counsel, federal judges and top outside defense counsel. Moreover, the CAFA Law Blog is a media sponsor; so you know its going to be great.

Come join us and learn how do deal with the uphill battle facing practitioners regarding:

•A rise in class action claims testing novel theories of fiduciary liability

•Health care reform, which:

◦Has given rise to the need to evaluate and overhaul plan documents

◦Will lead to new theories of liability with no legal precedent to turn to for guidance

•Managing plan administrators, fiduciaries and sponsors to properly implement and follow the claims review process

•Expanded precedent allowing plaintiffs to recover attorneys’ fees

•Educating the court on the legal complexities of plan documents

•Identifying the proper parties and permissible recovery under the complex scheme of §502(a) and confusing case law interpreting it

WHEN: Wednesday October 20 – Thursday October 21, 2010.

WHERE: Helmsley Park Lane, New York, New York
