A Locke Lord team comprising Jonathan Young, Allison O’Neil and Bilal Zaheer was retained to represent a French manufacturer and its affiliates in an ERISA withdrawal liability suit brought against the client in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts. The case presents questions of control group and alter ego liability alleged to have arisen from a merger and related restructuring transactions. The Firm received an introduction to the clients from World Law Group member Soulier Avocats, and was retained after presenting its credentials in commercial litigation and restructuring, as well as its capabilities in Boston.
