Porter Wright Launches Employee Benefits Blog

Porter Wright has launched its latest blog – Employee Benefits Law Report – at www.employeebenefitslawreport.com. This marks the sixth blog published by Porter Wright, emphasizing the firm's commitment to provide news and information in a manner that keeps pace with the way in which its clients conduct business.

"ERISA litigation has been growing, and the rules and regulations governing employee benefits plans are constantly in flux, making it increasingly difficult for employee benefit plan sponsors and service providers to navigate this complex landscape," said Ann Caresani, one of the blog's editors. "We have created this blog as a resource to help guide employers of all sizes through the complex administrative and legal challenges facing their employee benefit plans."

This blog will provide the latest information in a wide range of areas related to employee benefits, including:

• ERISA and employee benefits litigation
• Health care reform
• Retirement plans
• Audits and correction
• Benefits issues related to mergers and acquisitions
• Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs)
• ERISA fiduciary compliance
• Health and Welfare Plans
• Nonqualified Deferred Compensation/Executive Compensation
• Tax-exempt/government employers

Porter Wright publishes blogs on the topics of employee benefits and employment law, banking and finance, intellectual property and technology, securities and nanotechnology.
