Jones Day is a global law firm with more than 2,500 lawyers in 43 offices across five continents. The Firm is distinguished by: a singular tradition of client service; the mutual commitment to, and the seamless collaboration of, a true partnership; formidable legal talent across multiple disciplines and jurisdictions; and shared professional values that focus on client needs.
Our firm was founded and incorporated as an “LLC” in 2002 as a result of our clients’ encouragement of us to fill a need for a high-quality actuarial consulting firm, attentive to the needs of collectively bargained multiemployer plans. We have offered pension and welfare fund actuarial consulting services, specifically to Taft-Hartley defined benefit plans, since our inception in 2002. In 2009, we changed our tax designation from an LLC to that of an S-Corporation and changed our name to First Actuarial Consulting, Inc.
We currently have six accredited actuaries who average over 25 years of experience providing actuarial consulting services with a focus almost exclusively on the multiemployer plan area. Some speak and write frequently on relevant topics and are considered to be "thought leaders" within our industry. Our staff includes Associates of the Society of Actuaries, members of the American Academy of Actuaries, Fellows of the Conference of Consulting Actuaries, Enrolled Actuaries and members of the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (IFEBP) as well as members of the IFEBP's Professionals Committee.
We serve many other multiemployer and single-employer funds, the latter being mostly pension and welfare plans that benefit staff members of unions and those who administer related, collectively bargained industry benefits funds. We provide ongoing consulting services to a total of approximately 60 pension and welfare funds.
