Employee Benefits

Murphy Anderson’s lawyers have broad experience representing clients with employee-benefit issues, including matters under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”), the Affordable Care Act, and other federal and state laws.

Our lawyers proudly represent employee benefit trust funds that provide affordable health care, retirement income, and other benefits to union-represented participants and their families. The firm’s clients include single-employer and multiemployer Taft Hartley benefit plans, defined-benefit and defined-contribution retirement plans, and health and welfare plans.

Representing these institutional clients requires knowledge of the complex array of laws governing employee benefits. Murphy Anderson attorneys are intimately familiar with the intricacies of these laws. Our attorneys combine this expertise with a hands-on, practical approach to advising plan trustees on the many issues they face as they deliver these important benefits to their participants.

Murphy Anderson provides general advice and counseling to plan trustees on ERISA compliance and all aspects of plan administration and operation. Murphy Anderson’s lawyers also provide counsel to individual employees and labor organizations about employee-benefit matters. In addition to legal advice, our lawyers have decades of experience litigating actions on behalf of benefit funds, including participant and provider benefits disputes and actions against employers for delinquent contributions and withdrawal liability. Murphy Anderson prides itself on litigating these employee benefits cases effectively and efficiently. The firm has also represented individual employees and labor organizations in litigation before courts and arbitrators to enforce rights to unpaid pensions and lost health benefits.
