We found an ERISA expert with a JD from a top US law school who was a tenured law professor with over 20 years of experience with ERISA and employee benefits law. Prior to becoming a professor, he worked at two prominent law firms advising clients on their legal rights under ERISA. Well-respected in his field, he taught courses on ERISA and employee benefits law, served on the Federal ERISA Advisory Board and was a Fellow of the American College of Employee benefits Council. Additionally, he had authored books on Employee Benefits Law and authored over 20 papers and briefs on the subject. Finally, he had been deposed several times as an expert witness and was scheduled to testify at an ERISA arbitration. The final judgement in the case found the defendant had violated ERISA’s code of conduct for benefit plan caretakers.
