Groom Law Group Expands Its ERISA Litigation Group: Edward Meehan Joins Firm

WASHINGTON, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --   Groom Law Group, Chartered, a Washington, D.C. law firm that focuses exclusively on employee benefits, announced that Edward Meehan has joined the firm's ERISA litigation group.  Prior to joining Groom, Mr. Meehan spent 23 years at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, where he was a partner in the litigation group.

Mr. Meehan is an experienced litigator, having tried several dozen cases and hundreds of contested hearings before courts, arbitrators, and administrative agencies.  He has substantial experience in disputes involving employee benefits, including pension and health plans, often in the context of Chapter 11 or other corporate restructurings.  Representative matters include work for American Airlines and Eastman Kodak on retiree health benefit issues, for Hayes-Lemmerz International, Inc. on pension and retiree health matters, and for US Airways on pension issues.  In addition to his work on employee benefit matters, Mr. Meehan has defended class actions and other complex disputes across a wide range of industries.  He also has represented clients in connection with Department of Labor and Securities and Exchange Commission investigations.  

"We are very pleased to have Ed join our firm," said John McGuiness, Executive Principal of Groom Law Group.  "Litigation related to retirement and healthcare plans continues to escalate.  Our litigation group has tried nearly a dozen cases in recent years, including two cases in which Ed served as co-counsel.  He is widely-regarded as a first-rate trial attorney and his courtroom skills will serve our clients well.  He is a terrific addition to our team."

"I have worked with Groom as co-counsel for over a decade as we tried cases together on pension and retiree benefits matters," said Mr. Meehan.  "It was a natural fit for me to join Groom to concentrate my trial and other court experience in the growing ERISA litigation field."
