The labor law firm of Cary Kane LLP has been named the 2011 “ERISA Law Firm of the Year” for the United States by Finance Monthly Magazine, an international publication based in England which is read by law firms, corporate financiers, and international and domestic corporations. The Finance Monthly Law Awards is made by tabulating the votes received from the magazine’s readership.
Cary Kane’s ERISA practice focuses on union affiliated benefit funds. “I think it wonderful that a union-side law firm can be recognized by the readership of an international finance publication as the ERISA Law Firm of the Year in the United States,” said Larry Cary, a founding partner of the firm. “For many years I have tried to develop our ERISA practice to the point where it can become the recognized preeminent union-side ERISA law firm in New York City and I think we are on our way,” he added.
Cary has over 25 years of experience with litigating on behalf of and advising union benefit funds. He serves as a designated trustee for TWU Local 100 on the New York City Employees’ Retirement System, which has $44 Billion in assets, 300,000 participants and is the largest municipal retirement system in the United States.
