Summary: Mayer Brown welcomes veteran litigant Nancy Ross as partner on their ERISA branch in Chicago.


An outfit like Mayer Brown, with its global reach and dominance in the legal sector, carefully selects the partners it brings on board, and has made an especially stellar choice in bringing aboard Nancy Ross to join their Chicago office as a partner. She will bring her intensely focused experience working with the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) to thicken out Mayer’s Employment & ERISA Litigation practice.

This is a fitting choice considering Ross was named “Lawyer of the year ERISA Litigation – Chicago” by Best Lawyers in 2014. With years of experience advising employers regarding pension plans, ESOPS, fiduciary responsibilities, and the like, she has been eagerly welcomed by her new team.

“The continued increase in litigation under ERISA directly impacts companies in all industries, and Nancy is well-known in the marketplace as a first-rate ERISA and benefits litigator,” said Marcia Goodman, co-leader of Mayer’s ERISA branch. “Her breadth and depth of experience in counseling and litigation for these types of claims will be of tremendous value to clients, and we are thrilled to have her join Mayer Brown.”

Ross’s experience includes a JD from Loyola University of Chicago School of Law, and is broadened with her work on the board of directors on the Chicago Bar Foundation as well as vice chair of their Grants Committee.

“I was especially drawn to Mayer Brown’s collaborative culture, depth and quality of legal services and tremendous platform, which greatly complement my practice” said Ross, in explaining her move. “I look forward to working closely with talented lawyers across Mayer Brown’s various offices and practices to build upon the firm’s established ERISA litigation practice and esteemed reputation in client service.”

The key term here, of course, is “tremendous platform,” which was substantial enough to tempt a lawyer of Brown’s carriage. Having gained reputation and respect in her field, she would naturally choose a firm that can bolster her clout.
