Jennifer E. Eller is a principal with the Groom Law Group working primarily in the firm's fiduciary practice group. She advises large public plans, corporate plan sponsors, and financial institutions in connection with the investment of plan assets under U.S. law. She has negotiated complex investment agreements for large plan sponsors investing plan assets in collective vehicles designed to hold domestic and international real estate, make direct private equity investments, and utilize "fund of funds" approaches. She has also helped large plan sponsor clients (both public and private) negotiate direct investment management agreements with investment professionals who manage accounts exclusively for the benefit of a single plan or small group of related plans. These investment agreements have covered a range of investment styles and mandates. She also regularly advises clients on plan administration issues such as the proper allocation of plan expenses. Ms. Eller has also worked with banks, thrifts, insurance companies, and service providers on the creation and operation of financial products including collective investment vehicles.

Client Comments

"Her response time, industry knowledge, and practicality of advice are all excellent. I like how Jenny and Groom partner with us. She understands that I need to advise my internal clients in my company. From her, I get practical business answers and not textbook, unworkable solutions. I have a highly skilled group of ERISA lawyers in my company, so I am very selective on the outside ERISA firms I hire. Jenny and her partners bring depth to the table, adding to our level of expertise and not duplicating it."
