Overcomes Fiduciary Liability ERISA Claim Denial Securing Settlement within Month

Hoke LLC was retained by a large publicly traded client after its ERISA claim for benefits was completely denied by its EBL insurer. After making a novel argument that the policy benefits exclusion did not apply, Hoke LLC was able to secure agreement from the carrier to fund the majority of a settlement of the underlying ERISA claim all within approximately a month of being retained.
