The Employee Retirement Income and Security Act (ERISA) governs many welfare benefit plans, medical plans, pension plans and other retirement programs. This detailed law covers the content of these plans, as well as procedures for managing the programs and handling claims. Having a legal partner with experience with ERISA’s intricate administrative structure is essential. ERISA is highly technical, requiring knowledge of ERISA and its associated regulations. However, effective client counsel pairs legal know-how with "best practices" strategies for problem resolution based on years of experience advising companies in a wide variety of industries.
For our client's welfare benefit plans, Bell Nunnally provides guidance on ERISA’s regulatory requirements in benefit plan formation, program management, fiduciary obligations and claims handling. Further, if litigation arises, our team combines its litigation skill with ERISA experience to provide representation for its clients.
