April 15, 2017 Boston, Massachusetts – Jonathan M. Feigenbaum, Esq. will update attorneys at the American Association for Justice 2017 Annual Convention in Boston, MA on the topic, “The New ERISA Claim Regulations from the U.S. Department of Labor.” This presentation will be held during the ERISA Health and Disability Insurance Litigation Group program on Monday, July 24, 2017. Although the Secretary of Labor regulations do not go into effect until January 1, 2018, some Courts have already adopted the regulations as the position of the Secretary of Labor when interpreting ambiguous provisions. The ERISA claims regulations have not undergone a major revision in more than a decade, and this newly enacted regulations should prove helpful to those representing individuals in the pursuit of disability insurance, health insurance, life and insurance and other employee benefits falling under the ERISA umbrella.

Jonathan is a long-time AAJ member and has served as Past Chair of the Insurance Section and Past Chair of the ERISA, Health, and Disability Insurance Litigation Group. Jonathan is a Senior Editor of the Bloomberg BNA treatise, Employee Benefits Law.

“I am excited about the opportunity and honored to be chosen to speak to my peers about the importance of the new ERISA Claim Regulations. The newly revised regulations will help level the playing field for claimants,” said attorney Feigenbaum.

AAJ’s 2017 Annual Convention, Strength In Knowledge. Power From Networking. United For Justice will be held in Boston, MA July 22 – 25, 2017.

The American Association for Justice, formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, provides trial attorneys with information, professional support and a nationwide network that enables them to most effectively and expertly represent clients. The mission of the American Association for Justice is to promote a fair and effective justice system—and to support the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure that any person who is injured by the misconduct or negligence of others can obtain justice in America’s courtrooms, even when taking on the most powerful interests.

The American Association for Justice (AAJ) is committed to:

Promoting legal accountability and safety. This is more important now than ever because the drug and oil industries, big insurance companies, Wall Street banks, and other large corporations dominate our political process – we cannot depend on the political system alone to hold corporations accountable.

Working to enhance the practice of law by promoting collaboration among our members and educating lawyers to be excellent advocates for those who have been injured.

Advocating for the civil justice system, whether that means taking on powerful corporate interests, opposing unconstitutional attacks on the civil justice system or fighting harmful legislation that limits Americans’ access to the courts. We are committed to strengthening the civil justice system to ensure deserving individuals can get justice and wrongdoers are held accountable.

Improving our communities, trial attorneys seek justice and accountability for their clients when they are injured by the negligence and misconduct of others. They help individuals and families get their lives back on track after devastating harm. Trial attorneys also help create a better and safer future for all by giving back to their communities through volunteering, raising or donating money to charitable organizations, offering free legal services to people in need and other volunteer outreach projects.
