Law360 Spotlights Partner Amanda Amert’s ERISA Litigation Practice

As chair of the firm’s ERISA Litigation Practice, Partner Amanda S. Amert is the subject of the first article in a new Law360 series highlighting ERISA litigation practice leaders titled “Eye on ERISA:  A Chat with Jenner & Block’s Amanda Amert.”  The Q&A highlights her work with the team that won a significant ERISA case on behalf of Northwestern University, her involvement as co-chair of the Women’s Forum and her views on the recent uptick of plaintiffs firms in the ERISA space:  “[I]n the last year or two we've started to see more plaintiffs lawyers who have not traditionally practiced in this area but have done a lot of class action work migrating into the ERISA litigation space.  I think our expectation is that at least in the near term, there's going to be more ERISA litigation, not less.”
