McBride PC is a pension litigation firm in Los Angeles — with cases nationwide.
We handle pension and benefits (ERISA) litigation for large employee groups and classes. We also handle benefits-related bankruptcy adversary proceedings and related Constitutional law challenges for employee groups.
Litigation is discovering the truth, and cases are won or lost based on the evidence presented. In ERISA cases, we work hard to identify and uncover evidence of self-dealing. Self dealing is a siren call that a great many investment managers cannot ignore–and this always harms the plan’s returns. We focus intently on developing this evidence to ensure victory for our clients.
Our advantage over other large firms is our approach to cases. We dedicate ourselves to every aspect of the case and don’t rely on junior associates to research, write, and argue for us.
There’s no reason to pay hefty costs to firms when you can obtain equal or better quality litigation work from McBride Law PC at a fraction of the cost than our opponents.
Commercial litigation cases are won based on deep research of applicable facts that tell a story of liability. The following are examples of our litigation work across various areas of our commercial litigation practice:
We represented 1,200 United Parcel Service pilots in decertification from the Teamsters Union and launched a new union. After involving the FBI to observe organizing efforts, we won.
We won a $42 million pension increase for 743 retired United Airlines Pilots in ESOP appeal to Pension Benefit Guarantee Corp (PBGC), the largest pension increase for any employee group in 20 years.
We represented 1,500 United Airlines Pilots in litigation and advisory work to stop the employee stock option plan proposed by UAL. We found bribes to executives and stopped the deal.
We represented a healthcare sharing company in successful lobby work in Texas, Montana, and Arizona involving the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act’s religious exemption.
We worked as co-counsel with Boies, Schiller & Flexner, and represented a mid-sized software company in an unfair competition claim against IBM. The case settled for $14.25 million.
We represented a mid-sized hospital against Citibank to recover $12 million in derivative-based investment losses. We settled the case for $7.5 million early in litigation.
