Wagner Law Group Ranked "Tier 1" ERISA and Employee Benefits Law Firm

Issued by: Wagner Law Group P.C.

Date: May 13, 2019

The Wagner Law Group has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a Tier 1 Best Law Firm for 2019 in the areas of ERISA and employee benefits law

BOSTON, MA, USA, May 13, 2019 -- The Wagner Law Group, widely renowned as the country's top ERISA and employee benefits law firm, has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a Tier 1 Best Law Firm in the areas of ERISA and employee benefits law. "My goal when founding this firm was to provide the highest level of legal representation in a highly complex area of the law to every client, and we take great pride in having done so for over two decades - we are honored and humbled by this elite distinction from U.S. News," says Marcia Wagner, the firm's founder and Managing Director.

The Wagner Law Group has been dedicated to the highest standards of integrity, excellence and thought leadership for over two decades. With 36 attorneys in nine offices, it provides unparalleled legal advice to its clients, including large, small and nonprofit corporations as well as individuals and government entities nationwide and in several foreign countries. The firm's attorneys combine many years of experience in their fields of practice and include those who are AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell and are named annually to the prestigious Super Lawyers list. The Wagner Law Group is also certified as a woman-owned and operated business by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council.

The firm's nationally recognized ERISA and employee benefits practice contains highly focused and specialized practice areas, including: fiduciary compliance, retirement plans, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), executive compensation and nonqualified plans, welfare benefit plans, PBGC matters, litigation, expert witness services and independent fiduciary services. The firm routinely addresses issues involving defined benefit pension plans, profit sharing and 401(k) plans, ESOPs, multiemployer plans, Davis-Bacon plans, prototype and other pre-approved plans, voluntary employees' beneficiary associations (VEBAs), cafeteria plans, group medical and health plans (including ACA, HIPAA and COBRA), qualified domestic relations orders, qualified medical child support orders, and qualified and nonqualified deferred compensation programs.

Attorneys at The Wagner Law Group have considerable experience assisting clients in all aspects of establishing, operating, merging and terminating benefit plans and executive compensation arrangements and explaining the application of labor and securities laws and regulations to sponsors of employee benefit plans and executive compensation programs. They have also designed individualized transactional compliance systems to enable employers to comply with ERISA and the Internal Revenue Code. The firm's attorneys regularly advise clients on the application of the fiduciary responsibility and prohibited transaction provisions of ERISA to various types of transactions and investments, and represent clients in requests for individual and industry-wide (class) exemptions from the prohibited transaction provisions of ERISA. The one-of-a-kind Private Determination Letter Program (PDLP) developed by the firm, provides document compliance assurance to sponsors of individually designed plans in the wake of the IRS' scuttling of its determination letter program.

The Wagner Law Group has also developed a unique fiduciary audit practice under which it reviews the operation of clients' benefit plans, and its attorneys also assist clients in locating, selecting and engaging investment advisers for their retirement plans. The firm has successfully represented innumerable clients before the Department of Labor, the IRS and the PBGC in audits, examinations and settlement negotiations.
