Mr. Grosz spoke on a panel entitled Lessons Learned from Litigation, along with ERISA litigator Emily Costin. The session addressed recent lawsuits against retirement plans, sponsors and fiduciaries, and reviewed various categories of lawsuit allegations, such as questionable investment options, high fees, plan administration challenges and conflicts of interest. Ben also reviewed the non-monetary terms from recent settlement agreements, highlighting the implications for plan sponsors who have had to re-examine their processes to ensure they are running a compliant plan. The panelists concluded with a review of some suggested best practices and a lively Q&A discussion.
