Elizabeth A. Venditta

Liz Venditta concentrates her practice on the vigorous defense of life, accident, health and disability claims, particularly the defense of insurers, third-party administrators and employers in ERISA litigation involving benefit denial, fiduciary liability and related issues.

Client responsiveness, attention to detail and a proactive approach are the hallmarks of Liz’s successful ERISA practice, all of which lead to practical and efficient resolutions for her clients. She has handled litigation matters throughout the northeast region in federal and state courts, has represented clients at mediations and arbitrations, has counseled clients pre-litigation on fiduciary obligations and plan administration and has assisted clients in employee benefit plan design and compliance.

Liz has been a frequent speaker at national ERISA conferences, as well as at complimentary client seminars, on everything from “ERISA Litigation 101”—the elementary primer, to “Hot ERISA Topics”—tracking the latest developments. She has written on a variety of ERISA litigation issues and collaborated in the production of the ERISA Law Case Digest.

Liz is an elected and/or appointed member of various firm committees. She chairs the Operations Committee and Budget Committee, and is a member of the Pension Committee.

During law school, Liz was a published member of the principal Law Review, The Delaware Journal of Corporate Law, "Ethics Ruling on Legal Opinions in Tax Shelter Investment Offerings,” 7 Del.J.Corp.L. 449 (1982).
