Gallivan White Boyd represents plan and claim administrators in ERISA litigation involving all types of employee benefits – life, health, disability, accidental death and dismemberment. We also represent administrators in non-ERISA litigation.

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) governs employer sponsored and maintained group benefit plans. We know that healthcare and employee benefits are governed by complex state and federal laws that are often difficult to navigate and understand. Our attorneys help clients understand the impact and enforcement of these laws as well as how organizations may be at risk. We represent both self-funded and fully insured plans providing group life, health, disability, accidental death and dismemberment benefits. We also handle matters pertaining to life, health and disability benefits exempt from ERISA that are governed by state law. These matters include the defense of breach of contract and extracontractual claims.

Our attorneys have extensive federal and state court experience handling the following litigation matters: 

  • Accidental Death and Dismemberment Benefits
  • Health Benefits
  • Life Insurance
  • Long-Term Disability Benefits
  • Reimbursement Disputes
  • Short-Term Disability Benefits
  • Stop Loss Policy Claims
