We look forward to serving our clients from 23 offices and with 550 attorneys coast-to-coast.


Employee benefits are a valuable, expensive, and increasingly complicated part of workplace compensation and retention packages. Nexsen Pruet's attorneys have significant skills in all aspects of benefits disputes and litigation. We provide the employers we serve with an understanding of the issues and a client-based strategy for retention.

Minimizing legal exposure

The outcome for benefits disputes is greatly influenced by how well the claim being challenged is administered prior to actual litigation. Our attorneys have worked with a wide range of clients through this process, helping them minimize or avoid the financial exposure that can result from costly litigation. We recognize that for clients, frequently the best outcome is to avoid the cost of litigation while reducing future risks.

Skilled litigators

Since some claims do culminate in litigation, we are equally skilled in that area. Our attorneys have litigated all types of employee benefit matters. We have defended claims and sued on behalf of employers and plan sponsors, plan administrators and TPAs, and plan fiduciaries.

Our litigation experience includes:

  • Life, health, and disability benefit claims
  • Pension benefit claims
  • Severance pay claims
  • Breach of fiduciary duty claims
  • COBRA and state continuation coverage claims
  • Claims related to plan eligibility and plan coverage
  • ERISA and non-ERISA disputes
