McDonald’s 401k Lawsuit |  Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA)

ERISA governs various types of retirement plans including 401k plans. Under ERISA, plan participants and beneficiaries may seek redress for breaches of fiduciary responsibility, denial of benefits, or failure to provide adequate disclosures of plan terms or benefit changes.

ERISA requires employers who sponsor retirement plans to act prudently, loyally, and with the highest regard for the interests of the employees who participate in the plans when it comes to selecting investment options and investing plan assets. When employers breach their duties by investing plan assets imprudently, plan participants can seek to hold them accountable for losses the plan suffers as a result.

McDonald’s may have breached its fiduciary duties by making unsuitable investments with employees’ 401k portfolios, potentially costing participants in its 401k plan thousands of dollars in lost retirement savings. Peiffer Wolf Carr Kane & Conway has extensive experience representing plan participants and beneficiaries in claims where ERISA fiduciaries imprudently invested plan assets causing losses to the plan participants.

Typically, we represent clients on contingency fee agreements. If we take your case under a contingency fee arrangement, you won’t owe our firm any legal fees unless we are able to recover money for you.

Our contingency fee agreements are usually based on a percentage of the amount we recover for our clients. The contingency fee amount is determined by the type of case, our estimate of how long it will take to resolve your case, and our estimate of the litigation costs we will advance in your case. Each engagement agreement includes the details of the fee arrangement. Questions about our fee agreements are welcomed and encouraged.

In most litigation matters, it is extremely difficult – practically impossible – to predict how long it will take to resolve a particular case. Every case is different, and we will do our best to provide you with an estimate based on your case and our experience with similar cases. Moreover, we will do our best to keep you updated and manage expectations along the way.
