Pre-Litigation Risk Assessment
Those who fail to plan, plan to fail. – Anonymous.
A significant part of any litigation analysis is to assess the risk to which a client is exposed, and to plan accordingly. Our experienced litigators counsel clients regarding situations that may give rise to potential litigation and work collectively with the client to develop a plan of action that is best suited to meet the client's needs. Recent examples include:
- Worked with multiple Fortune 500 companies to assess the legal risk associated with proposed changes to retiree health benefits.
- Advised companies with respect to restructuring plan governance and tightening plan document language to reduce risk attendant to employer stock investment option.
- Advised financial institutions regarding risk associated with the use of affiliated mutual funds as investment options in the 401(k) plan for the financial institution's employees.
