Goodwin Procter Makes Recording Available of its Webinar Concerning the Rise of ERISA Litigation Involving Collective Trusts and Other Retirement Products

As discussed in prior issues of the Alert, on February 7th Goodwin Procter hosted a webinar on current trends in capital market ERISA litigation and related regulatory investigations involving ERISA-governed retirement plans and managers of plan assets.

The webinar addressed the recent wave of ERISA litigation and related regulatory investigations - - including matters involving collective trusts, so-called excessive fees, and “stock drops.”  Goodwin Procter litigators also shared their views on current trends in this area and discussed steps that may be taken by financial services firms now to prevent, or at least defend against, such regulatory investigations and litigation.
