DWT Employment

The Western Pension & Benefits Council, Seattle Chapter's focus with our 2019 Spring Seminar is to provide benefits professionals with tools, knowledge and new ideas to help pension and benefits plan participants. This year’s Spring Seminar will continue to offer key industry updates necessary to stay current as benefits professionals.

DWT partner Rich Birmingham will be presenting "Litigation Update: Two Perspectives." He and attorney Erin Riley will walk you through the cases to watch and the latest developments in ERISA litigation, including: mental health parity; actuarial assumptions; 3rd party service provider litigation, recent fee dispute victories; stock drop disputes; suits against defined benefit plans; the fiduciary rule, enforceability of arbitration clauses and other limitations on ERISA lawsuits as well as the burden of proof on damages for a fiduciary breach.

DWT is a proud sponsor of this event.
