Olshan ERISA Victory Upheld in Appeals Court
January 19, 2011
The Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals affirmed Olshan’s victory in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of Handy & Harman in a claim made by Handy’s former chief financial officer who was accused of attempting to amend the Company’s supplemental retirement plan to enhance his own retirement benefits. The victory should bring to an end a true team effort to represent Handy. The team handling this litigation includes Thomas J. Fleming with assistance from Manes M. Merrit and Barry L. Salkin handling the employee benefits issues including the creation of an internal appeals procedure at the company and Allen R. Wolff handling the insurance coverage issues. Read the decision here.
