Stuart M. Lewis will serve as a luncheon speaker at this seminar, which is presented by the American Bar Association Joint Committee on Employee Benefits. The program is designed for in-house counsel, benefits specialists, private practitioners, consultants, accountants and corporate executives. Lewis is a shareholder in the Washington, D.C., office of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney. He is chair of the firm’s Employee Benefits Practice Group and co-chair of the firm's ERISA Litigation Group and Executive Compensation Group. Stuart is also a National Institute Faculty member.
Lewis' session, which will take place on Friday, April 18, is titled "Commoditizing Pension Plans: Can it be done — should it be permitted?" More than a "theory" seminar, this program will feature commentary from experienced lawyers on how they incorporate innovative concepts into their practice. Attendees will receive immediate feedback to their questions, learn "behind the scenes" stories, pick up the finer points on handling a deal, and meet and network with government officials and find out why they take the positions they do on the latest controversial issues.
The program will be held at the New York Helmsley Hotel in New York City. For more information, visit the American Bar Association website at www.abanet.org.
