Jamie Bowers, an Associate in Cohen Milstein's Employee Benefits / ERISA practice, will serve as a faculty panelist for the American Bar Association's Joint Committee on Employee Benefits CLE program “ERISA Litigation and Employee Stock Ownership Plans” on January 14, 2021.

The program will discuss ERISA claims by participants and the Department of Labor relating to employee stock ownership plans ("ESOPs"). Such ERISA claims commonly involve disputes over ERISA standards for ESOP purchases or sales of employer stock. The panel will discuss the legal issues that arise from ESOP stock transactions and several court decisions that addressed ESOP purchases or sales of employer stock.
