When You Retain A Groom Attorney . . . You Retain the Firm

The client was a NYSE company in the business of health benefits administration. It had been eagerly awaiting a court decision involving a competitor because the issue had a direct effect on its major line of business. But when the decision was unexpectedly adverse, the eagerness turned to anxiety.

Within a few days, Groom’s Litigation Group produced a memorandum outlining a new judicial strategy.  Attorneys in the firm’s Health and Welfare Group recommended revisions in health plan documents that had been provided to the client’s customers.  Lawyers in the Public and Multiemployer Plans Group communicated with their clients about how to deal with the decision.  And attorneys from the Policy and Legislation Group put together a coalition of similarly affected companies and drafted a legislative paper to explain the problem on Capitol Hill.

Pointing to action on every conceivable front, the client demonstrated to its investors that the problem was well in hand—and was able to continue its business without material interruption.

Groom Law Group offers clients unparalleled coverage of issues and disputes arising from ERISA, the Tax Code, securities laws, HIPAA, COBRA, and the many other laws that govern employee benefits. Although they work in nine different practice groups, Groom’s 70 attorneys share a common understanding of employee benefits law that enables them to integrate their efforts across areas of specialization to produce the best results for their clients. At Groom, when you hire one lawyer, you are hiring the whole firm.
