Herbert New

Of Counsel

Email: solon.herbnew1@verizon.net | Phone: 862.210.8220

Since 1954, Mr. New has specialized in Labor Law with particular emphasis on employee benefit law and representing employers of unionized labor. With the passage of ERISA in 1974, Mr. New became a specialist in the complexities of that Federal law, to which the many published, and precedent-setting cases he handled will attest.

Mr. New was involved in the first action under RICO brought by the United States Justice Department seeking to impose trusteeship on a union and its affiliated benefit funds. Mr. New successfully defended the benefit funds resulting in their exoneration and avoidance of a court-appointed trustee being named.
