Ivelisse Berio LeBeau joined Sugarman & Susskind in 2007, after serving as a Trial Attorney in the Solicitor's Office of the U.S. Department of Labor for 13 years. While at the Department of Labor she primarily represented the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA), the DOL agency charged with protecting the integrity of pension plans, health plans and other employee benefit plans governed by the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).
As a DOL attorney enforcing ERISA Ms. Berio LeBeau assisted EBSA during DOL investigations and brought legal actions claiming that fiduciaries to ERISA employee benefit plans breached their fiduciary duties to such plans. She worked on many different types of cases, including cases involving trustees to ERISA pension plans who breached fiduciary duties in making investment decisions; service providers to ERISA health plans that failed to disclose their receipt of additional revenue in connection with pharmacy benefit management services or hospital reimbursements; fiduciaries to 401(k) plans who failed to ensure that employee contributions were properly transferred to such plans; and service providers to ERISA retirement plans that failed to disclose and receive authorization to retain revenue, such as float income, generated while providing contracted services. Ivelisse also created training materials for EBSA investigators to use in drafting subpoenas and in preparing cases for litigation.
Ivelisse is also an accomplished writer, who was recently appointed as an Associate Senior Editor for the 2008 Cumulative Supplement to Employee Benefit Law, 2nd Ed. (BNA Books), after serving as a Rewrite Editor and Contributing Author on the 2004 through 2007 Cumulative Supplements. She has also been invited to speak at various legal conferences on ERISA and employee benefits law topics.
