Sullivan & Leavitt, P.C. has assisted trucking companies in obtaining and maintaining their federal, state, and Canadian operating authorities and assisting with resulting compliance issues.

Pension Plan Withdrawal Liability: Sullivan & Leavitt, P.C. is a leading—if not the premiere—law firm in Michigan and the Midwest representing businesses that contribute to multiemployer pension plans subject to the Multiemployer Pension Plan Amendments Act of 1980 (MPPAA). Sullivan & Leavitt, P.C. services a multitude of employers in transportation, construction, and trades who face unfunded withdrawal liability as a result of participating in defined benefit pension plans. Withdrawal liability can occur when an employer reduces its contribution levels, goes out of business, drastically reduces its workforce, or if its employees choose to no longer be represented by a union.  The potential liability of an employer in these circumstances is enormous, sometimes exceeding even the value of the business.  If you are facing unfunded withdrawal liability, please contact us immediately for a consultation.

On September 24, 2014, Martin J. Leavitt, Esq., and Paul E. Robinson, Esq., as Principals of Sullivan and Leavitt, P.C., gave a presentation on pension plan withdrawal liability with emphasis on the construction industry to the Michigan Association of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA) Automobile Dealers, Construction Industry, Controllers, and Insurance Conference.  To view the PowerPoint presentation, click here: [ PowerPoint ].
