Previously a partner at McDermott Will & Emery, Nancy G. Ross has joined Mayer Brown's Chicago office as a partner in the Employment & ERISA Litigation practice. Ross focuses her practice primarily on employee benefits class action litigation and counseling under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). She has extensive experience in counseling and representing employers, boards of directors, plan fiduciaries and trustees in matters concerning pension and welfare benefit plans.

"The continued increase in litigation under ERISA directly impacts companies in all industries, and Nancy is well-known in the marketplace as a first-rate ERISA and benefits litigator," said Marcia Goodman, co-leader of the Employment & ERISA Litigation practice, in a statement.

Ross' experience includes representation of pension plans, ESOPs, trustees and employers concerning their administration of plan assets and fiduciary responsibilities. She frequently represents directors and officers who are named as defendants in ERISA litigation over 401(k) plans and other employee benefit plans. She also has extensive experience in counseling employers seeking to reduce their retiree health benefits exposure and has successfully represented companies in litigation challenging the reduction of retiree medical benefits.

An active member of the legal community, Ross is on the board of directors of the Chicago Bar Foundation (CBF) and serves as vice chair of CBF's Grants Committee. She is a fellow of the American Bar Foundation and of the American College of Employee Benefits Counsel. Ross holds a JD from Loyola University of Chicago School of Law and a BA from the University of Colorado.
