Keightley & Ashner specializes in Title IV of ERISA, relating to the federal pension insurance program administered by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. As such, the firm's focus is narrow, but they are excellent within the limited area in which they practice. We use them to provide insight into the informal aspects of rulemaking, decision making, and enforcement at PBGC. Jim Keightley and Harold Ashner founded the firm and are its key practitioners.
