Shook & Johnson has just put up this ERISA website and this is my maiden blog. Consequently, I’ll keep it short.
I practice ERISA law on behalf of individuals, primarily in the context of company-provided disability benefits. ERISA law decidedly favors plan administrators and insurance companies, and unless a claimant knows that at the outset of an ERISA-governed claim, he or she is in for a rude awakening. Likewise, lawyers who merely dabble in ERISA-governed claims frequently fall victim to the perils and pitfalls of the law. My intent for this blog is to present information which may be useful to ERISA claimants and my fellow lawyers.
Stay tuned as Shook & Johnson enters the brave new world of the blogosphere.
