Legal Analytics for ERISA Litigation

Lex Machina’s Legal Analytics for ERISA Litigation enables attorneys and companies to make data-driven decisions about federal disputes over the administration of employee benefits plans protected by The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974.

Now you can use quantified insights into the behavior of district court judges, opposing parties, and opposing counsel to gain competitive advantage in ERISA litigation. Lex Machina’s litigation data helps you analyze the track records of opposing counsel and parties, the experience and behaviors of judges, case outcomes by federal district, and other critical factors, such as case timing, findings, and damages, which play a critical role in determining case strategy.

Our case set includes cases initiated by plan participants or beneficiaries involving alleged disputes over the administration or funding of ERISA-protected employee benefits plans, including life, health, retirement, pension, profit-sharing, healthcare savings accounts, and more.
