Goodbye Chicago, Hello New York! American Conference Institute is excited to announce that our traditionally 2-part (NY/Chicago) ERISA Litigation conference series is being combined into one Annual Fall ERISA Mega Event taking place November 2 – 3, 2017 in New York City. This combined program will now be your one and only chance until Fall of 2018 to gain all of the essential ERISA litigation updates and strategies necessary for your practice. Don’t be left out of the conversation! The latest round of ERISA claims and class actions are more complex than ever and the stakes involved for all parties are exceptionally high. There are huge variations in the types of cases that are arising, as well as substantive differences involved in defending against the various claims. In addition, the best plaintiff attorneys are involved in the cases. Throw in the current ERISA “environment” (including growing ranks of retirement-age demographic) and it’s entirely evident that in defending and managing these complex claims, counsel for companies, plan fiduciaries, sponsors, administrators, advisors and insurers face a distinct uphill battle.   Now, more than ever, there is simply no room for error in litigating these claims. In response, American Conference Institute is proud to introduce the 15th installment of the only ERISA Litigation conference that goes extra mile and brings you the highest level judicial insights and maximum networking opportunities with in-house industry experts.
