‘The Free Market Is Always One Step Ahead of Regulators’

Scott J. Stitt, Counsel at Tucker Ellis LLP in Columbus, Ohio, says “the Tibble v. Edison case from the US Supreme Court in May 2015 added a lot of uncertainty over the application of the statute of limitations in ERISA fee cases, and how far back a plaintiff can look when asserting a breach of fiduciary duty claim. That uncertain liability window–plus the fiduciary rule and its news commentary, plus some big recent fee case settlements (like in the Nationwide case, and the Boeing case, to name just two)–have led to increased discussions regarding fees. I think of all of these things as creating a ‘critical mass’ of fee news and commentary that has caught everyone’s attention.”
