Yankwitt LLP’s ERISA/Benefits Litigation practice combines the firm’s extensive experience in employment and labor litigation and high-stakes, complex litigation to resolve disputes related to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and other federal and state employee benefits issues. Our clients benefit from our impressive depth of federal court experience, which is the forum for most benefits litigation. Our seasoned and highly trained attorneys are former federal law clerks and prosecutors, who appear before the federal courts in Westchester County and throughout the New York metropolitan area on a daily basis. We intimately know the federal court rules and judges and apply that knowledge to provide high-quality and cost-effective litigation services to our clients. With this deep bench of aggressive litigators and a thorough understanding of ERISA and employment law, Yankwitt LLP is acutely qualified to handle complex benefits matters on behalf of both employees and employers.

Transactional employee benefits/ERISA attorneys routinely rely on us to handle their litigation because our creative problem solving, persuasive writing, aggressive advocacy and technical understanding of the law are critical to the successful resolution of these proceedings. These often include claims relating to: 

  • Denial of Life, Health, Disability, and Retirement Benefits
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Bad Faith
  • Misrepresentation
  • Subrogation and Reimbursement

Yankwitt LLP’s lawyers recognize that while no two clients and cases are the same, one thing remains constant – we always listen to our clients. We strive to resolve their cases in the most cost-effective way that meets their goals, while tirelessly and aggressively advocating on their behalf.
