The Ghosts of Section 36(b) Excessive Fee Litigation: Past, Present and Future

The Tenth Circuit’s recent decision in Obeslo, et al. v. Great-West Life & Annuity marked another victory for investment advisors in a decade-long wave of excessive fee litigation. This Coffee Chat explores the rise of excessive fee cases since 2010, whether the Great-West decision signals an end to Section 36(b) excessive fee cases, and what legal challenges advisors may face going forward.

Topics include:

  • Excessive fee litigation in the wake of the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Jones v. Harris
  • Post-Jones developments in Section 36(b)
  • The Great-West decision’s emphasis on the sixth Gartenberg factor
  • The future of fee litigation
