McBride PC focuses on pension litigation, PBGC representation and derivatives litigation for clients in Southern California and nationwide.
Although we are a small firm, we only accept large cases on behalf of employee groups or classes against prominent companies. We typically employ other lawyers and firms to assist, as the case may require.
We particularly focus on the problem of mis-valued investments embedded in pension plans whose fair market value is hidden from pension owners and participants. We have a long history of successful litigation concerning asset valuation, including cases involving:
-- United Airlines (failure to properly value frequent flyer program)
-- Citibank (failure to fairly trade in derivative investments)
-- JPMorgan (failure to properly value proprietary derivative notes)
-- Lazard Freres (failure to properly value ESOP interests of employees)
Additionally, we have successfully represented plaintiffs in large cases against other well-known entities, including:
- IBM: $14 million settlement for small company
- PBGC (United Airlines): $42 million pension increase for 473 retired UAL pilots
- Los Angeles County: vaccination mandate litigation for 683 LA County firefighters
- United Parcel Service/Teamsters Union: independent union organization formed for 1000+ UPS pilots
Our niche is representing employee groups or classes in high-profile litigation against prominent companies.
We do not accept small value cases for individual clients.
