The American College of Employee Benefit Counsel (ACEBC) has inducted partner Rick Pautler as a Fellow. The College recognizes employee benefit attorneys who have dedicated their careers to the field of employee benefits and who, in doing so, have demonstrated their leadership, character, ability and professional responsibility while providing exceptionally high-quality professional services to clients, the bar and the public.
Fewer than 400 attorneys across the United States are Fellows in the ACEBC, and Pautler is the only ACEBC Fellow in Missouri who devotes his practice to defending ERISA litigation. Pautler has appeared as lead counsel in more than 80 reported ERISA district court opinions originating from more than 30 district courts, and 30 ERISA appellate court opinions originating from eight different circuits.
