Kurt Charles Struckhoff

Before attending law school, Kurt received joint degrees in finance and accounting with summa cum laude honors. Since graduating from law school, his practice has been exclusively devoted to complex fiduciary breach litigation, including class actions brought under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”).

Kurt has been actively involved in all aspects of complex litigation, from pre-complaint investigation through judgment. He has been second chair in multiple actions handled by the firm, including two ERISA fiduciary breach class actions, In re Northrop Grumman ERISA Litig., No. 06-6213 (C.D. Cal.), and Tibble v. Edison Int’l, No. 07-5359 (C.D. Cal.). He was a member of the trial team in Tussey v. ABB, Inc., No. 06-4305 (W.D. Mo.), the first full trial of any 401(k) excessive fee case brought under ERISA that resulted in a $36.9 million judgment. He was the lead associate in other ERISA fiduciary breach class actions that each resulted in multi-million dollar settlements for class members, including Marshall v. Northrop Grumman Corp., No. 16-6794 (C.D. Cal.), Troudt v. Oracle Corp., No. 16-175 (D. Colo.), Clark v. Duke Univ., No. 16-1044 (M.D. N.C.), Kelly v. Johns Hopkins Univ., No. 16-2835 (D. Md.), and Ramsey v. Philips N.A., No. 18-1099 (S.D. Ill.).

Outside of work, Kurt enjoys spending time with his wife and two boys.
