Matthew Gerend practices in the firm’s nationally recognized Complex Litigation Group, representing employees, benefit plans, and consumers in litigation to enforce antitrust laws and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”).

Matt has represented plaintiffs in federal courts across the country to redress harms stemming from breaches of fiduciary duties, investment fraud, anticompetitive conduct, and other misconduct that harms employees, benefit plans, and consumers. 

Matt has also represented health plan members and health plans in litigation to hold pharmacy benefit managers and drug manufactures accountable for unfair, deceptive, and anticompetitive practices that artificially drive up the prices for critical medications, such as the EpiPen and the MS drug Copaxone.

Matt became interested in the laws protecting retirement and health benefits as a clerk with AARP Foundation Litigation, where he helped draft a number of amicus curiae briefs filed in the U.S. Supreme Court and U.S. Courts of Appeals regarding the proper interpretation and implementation of ERISA. During law school, Matt also worked as an intern with the Community Development Project at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. 

Matt believes that lawyers have a unique ability to effect social change, an ethic that has guided his work representing individuals and benefit plans against those engaged in divisive and fraudulent practices.
