Trustee and Fiduciary Responsibilities

We have an active practice advising trustees and employers with respect to the separate powers and duties which may need to be exercised by them in relation to ERISA and U.S. Department of Labor regulations. This eases the burden upon individuals who may act in more than one capacity (for example, as trustee and finance director or president of the employer). We can clarify the legal standards applicable to these individuals, so that legitimate commercial objectives of the company can be achieved consistent with proper fiduciary responsibilities
