Biography

David Preminger is a practiced advocate for employees, retirees, and beneficiaries. The resident partner in the firm's Complex Litigation Group New York office, David focuses on Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”) fiduciary breach class action cases as well as individual benefit claims. He has been litigating ERISA cases for nearly 40 years, since the Act's passage in 1974. David has been the lead counsel or co-counsel on numerous ERISA cases alleging misconduct in connection with the investment of retirement plan assets, including Hartman et al. v. Ivy Asset Management et al., a case involving fiduciary breach related to Madoff investments that resulted in a $219 million settlement with consolidated cases. He has been involved in ERISA cases against Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, Colonial BancGroup and Marsh & McLennan resulting in multi-million dollar settlements on behalf of class members.

David's familiarity with the changes to and nuances of ERISA law allows him to expertly and efficiently interpret the statute and regulations and analyze issues on behalf of his clients. He has handled over 100 trials and in addition to his ERISA experience has extensive experience litigating and negotiating antitrust, real estate, civil rights, family law, and general commercial and corporate matters.

Prior to joining Keller Rohrback, David was a partner at Rosen Preminger & Bloom LLP where his successes included the In re Masters Mates & Pilots Pension Plan and IRAP Litigation. He was previously a Supervisory Trial Attorney for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, a Senior Attorney with Legal Services for the Elderly Poor, and a Reginald Heber Smith fellow with Brooklyn Legal Services. He is a charter fellow of the American College of Employee Benefits Counsel, a senior editor of Employee Benefits Law (Bloomberg BNA), and Chair of the Board of Mabou Mines, an experimental theater company in New York City, for the past 20 years.
