Winston & Strawn Adds ERISA Specialist in San Francisco

The Winston & Strawn law firm has added James P. Baker, a specialist in the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), to its San Francisco office.
A news release said Baker regularly represents clients in federal district and appellate courts across the country. According to a news release, Baker has acted as lead attorney in five ERISA stock-drop class-action cases.

“Jim will help us expand further an already key area of our practice,” said Rex Sessions, chairman of Winston & Strawn’s labor and employment relations department, in the news release.

The release said Baker regularly authors articles and presents seminars on legal issues affecting employment benefits and currently serves as co-chair of the American Bar Association’s ERISA and Pension Litigation Subcommittee of the Committee on Business and Corporate Litigation. He is also a mediator on ERISA cases for the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Eastern districts of California.
