Associated Bank

Evans, et al. v. Associated Banc-Corp, et al.
Case No. 1:21-cv-60 (E.D. Wis.)

On January 13, 2021, we filed a lawsuit on behalf of participants in the Associated Banc-Corp 401(k) and Employee Stock Ownership Plan (the “Plan”). The lawsuit alleges that the Plan’s fiduciaries (the Defendants in the case) violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) by failing to act prudently or in the interest of Plan participants and beneficiaries in managing the Plan’s investment options. 

Among other things, the lawsuit alleges that Defendants breached their fiduciary duties by providing imprudent investment options affiliated with Associated Bank in the plan menu and charging excessive fees for administrative and recordkeeping services. If you believe you may have been shortchanged as a result of the alleged mismanagement of the Plan, please contact Sean Kelly, our Class Action Clerk, by phone at (612) 256-3275 or by email at

The lawsuit seeks to recover the Plan’s financial losses and other equitable relief. For a copy of the Complaint, click here.
