Jenner & Block

West Legalworks - 21st Annual ERISA Litigation Conference

Jenner & Block Partner Craig C. Martin will speak at the West Legalworks’ “21st Annual ERISA Litigation Conference,” to be held October 23-24 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will examine ERISA litigation as employer stock cases, 401(k) fee suits and ERISA preemption challenges continue to proliferate in the courts. Jenner & Block is a sponsor of the conference.

Mr. Martin and other conference faculty will examine two key Supreme Court decisions: LaRue v. DeWolff Boberg & Associates, Inc., in which the Supreme Court spoke definitively on participant standing in defined contribution plan cases; and Metropolitan Life Ins. Co. v. Glenn, which left many questions unanswered about the standard of review in benefits claim litigation.

Mr. Martin is Chair of the Firm's ERISA Litigation Practice and Co-Chair of its Business Litigation Practice. He speaks and writes frequently on the topic of retirement law and on a variety of other topics including fiduciary duties under federal securities, antitrust, the attorney-client privilege, and the management of complex litigation.
