Cary Kane Named “ERISA Law Firm of the Year"

By Stephanie West

The labor law firm of Cary Kane LLP has been named the 2011 “ERISA Law Firm of the Year” for the United States by Finance Monthly Magazine, an international publication based in England which is read by law firms, corporate financiers, and international and domestic corporations. The Finance Monthly Law Awards is made by tabulating the votes received from the magazine’s readership.

Cary Kane’s ERISA practice focuses on union affiliated benefit funds. “I think it wonderful that a union-side law firm can be recognized by the readership of an international finance publication as the ERISA Law Firm of the Year in the United States,” said Larry Cary, a founding partner of the firm. “For many years I have tried to develop our ERISA practice to the point where it can become the recognized preeminent union-side ERISA law firm in New York City and I think we are on our way,” he added.

Cary has over 25 years of experience with litigating on behalf of and advising union benefit funds. He serves as a designated trustee for TWU Local 100 on the New York City Employees’ Retirement System, which has $44 Billion in assets, 300,000 participants and is the largest municipal retirement system in the United States.


  1. Do the TWU members have the right to vote in Secret Ballot Elections for their Local Union Officers?

    Are they full time paid positions which included Local Union Business Repesentatives?

    Yes or No to the above will suffice.

  2. Please post some cases which this firm has won. Any precedents of consequence or legal significance?

    Do tell...c'mon, there has to be one.

    an international publication based in England ...Wow Based in England where I am sure ERISA is based

    The Finance Monthly Law Awards is made by tabulating the votes received from the magazine’s readership....Oh. So it was not an award or recognition based on any formal procedure or real legitimate evaluation but the magazines readers. Wow. Did you know that the readers of goth weekly voted that Marlyn Mansion is normal. I wonder how many times Cary Kane voted. I wonder how many times the 500 NYC Carpenters they claim to represent voted.
    Its bad enough(but your right) that your supporting a UBC dirt Bag like Pat Nee but now your blowing Cary Kanes horn. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. Lets forget that they were and are up to their neck in the CC4D BS. Now their legit????


I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
