Keightley & Ashner is excellent. They know the PBGC regulations better than the PBGC's own lawyers. They are exceptionally well connected and highly respected -- get calls and emails returned from top PBGC staff -- and they are relentless in their efforts to come up with compliant, effective, and practical solutions.

Employee Benefits (ERISA) Law

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.
