Evan Miller provides employee benefits counsel and represents companies in complex ERISA litigation cases. He co-chairs the Firm's Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation Practice.
As a litigator, Evan has defended companies and individuals in stock drop cases, fiduciary duty class actions against plan service providers, and cash balance and accrued benefit cutback litigation. He also has been involved in retiree health cutback cases and has helped pioneer the use of retiree health VEBAs to shift legacy costs. He also is experienced in defending contributors to Taft-Hartley plans in withdrawal liability disputes. Representative clients for which he has recently handled ERISA litigation include CBS, Continental Tire Co., General Motors, Home Box Office, the League of Voluntary Hospitals and Homes of New York, Macy's, Peabody Coal, and Xerox Corporation.
As a counselor, Evan advises plan sponsors and administrators on ERISA's reporting and disclosure requirements; health plan service providers on COBRA, HIPAA, ERISA fiduciary duty, and prohibited transaction rules; and multiemployer plan and plan termination issues.
Most recently, Evan advised General Motors and Verizon Communications in connection with their 2012 pension de-risking transactions with Prudential Life. These two transactions collectively involved a permanent transfer of more than $30 billion in pension plan liabilities. Currently, Evan is assisting the City of Detroit in connection with its chapter 9 bankruptcy, helping to develop its pension and OPEB restructuring proposals, and in negotiating with the city's key retiree stakeholder constituencies with the goal of a consensual pension/OPEB restructuring.
