Nancy Pridgen, Founding Member/Partner, Pridgen Bassett Law
Pridgen Bassett Law is an employment law and ERISA litigation boutique firm in Atlanta, providing nationwide representation for their wide-ranging clients. Their attorneys have spent many years at Alston & Bird and King & Spalding representing sophisticated top-tier clients in complex ERISA litigation and employment matters. Pridgen Bassett Law was created to make that experience accessible to a wider range of clients. ERISA and employment matters require knowledge and experience. Employees, executives, businesses, plan sponsors, and fiduciaries should have access to that resource — no matter the size of the matter or the size of the business. Pridgen Bassett Law is that resource.
ERISA is a comprehensive but exceedingly complex statutory enactment, and as such, is rife with the potential for disputes between plan participants/ beneficiaries and plan sponsors/fiduciaries. Pridgen Bassett Law distinguishes itself by understanding both sides of ERISA. They have counseled both employers and employees about ERISA, as well as litigated on their behalf. Pridgen Bassett Law’s comprehensive approach to ERISA litigation ultimately benefits our clients because it both enhances our ability to see a case from all sides and requires us to stay up to date on all of the latest legal developments in ERISA disputes.
The same applies to Pridgen Bassett Law’s handling of employment law matters, both for employers and employees. They firmly believe that having a well-rounded understanding of federal and state employment laws benefits all parties potentially involved in workplace disputes. They provide employment law representation to employees, typically executives or key employees, who have specific questions relating to their employment contracts, rights, and/or who are transitioning from one job to the next. Additionally, one of the most important services that Pridgen Bassett Law’s attorneys provide is ongoing employment counseling. When human resources questions arise regarding onboarding, separations, employee handbooks, grievance procedures, new requirements or other policy matters, the attorneys provide answers to ensure your company or your HR department is complying with current requirements under applicable federal and state employment laws.
