Manatt is hosting an invitation-only Public Pension Fund Fiduciary Forum in San Francisco March 22-23, 2012 titled "Retirement Benefits and Trustees Under Pressure in 2012". Public pension fund trustees, executives, and advisors face extraordinary legal and political challenges as critics and others attempt to reform public employee retirement systems and undercut those who run them.
