May 31, 2016

ERISA Fiduciary Law, Second Edition is a leading must-have for any legal practitioner navigating the many requirements of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and seeking clarity in the constantly developing body of plan fiduciary case law. Practitioners can address crucial ERISA-related issues with this in-depth analysis of definitive fiduciary topics. Discussion encompasses ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code, Department of Labor regulations and the federal courts.

Analysis from prominent practitioners provides every research advantage on the range of fiduciary responsibility issues, with ERISA’s complex fiduciary rules carefully explained, summarized, and examined. This treatise explores the intricacies of this area of law, addresses both basic principles and a range of specific considerations, explains the relevance of significant exceptions and exemptions and describes the many complex rules governing ESOPs.

The 2016 Cumulative Supplement includes a new chapter on the ERISA implications of investment in swaps and other derivatives, consideration of emerging topics relating to the Department of Labor’s controversial reproposal of the definition of “fiduciary” under ERISA and the proposed “Best Interest Contract” class exemption, and a discussion of insurers’ fiduciary responsibilities. Analysis has been updated for a number of recent judicial and regulatory developments, including a host of Supreme Court cases such as Fifth Third Bancorp v. Dudenhoeffer and Tibble International v. Edison, and other federal court decisions addressing revenue sharing and excessive fee claims, statute of limitations, arbitration, employer stock-drop issues, preemption of state law malpractice claims against attorneys, and many others.
