From the first regulations issued by the Department of Labor to issues seen in today's news, the attorneys in Groom's Fiduciary Responsibility Group have helped to shape every major administrative initiative related to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act's (ERISA) fiduciary responsibility provisions. We have been out front in obtaining interpretations of fiduciary rules related to plan expenses, identifying plan assets, participant-directed plans, payment of commissions, and reporting and disclosure.
We regularly advise plan sponsor clients on plan governance, plan administration and plan investment matters. And we advise financial institutions, third party administrations and plan consultants and on the design of new financial products and plan administration services.
