WW160027 The Wagner Law Group Company: The Wagner Law Group Name: Marcia S. Wagner, Esq. Email: [email protected] Web Address: www.wagnerlawgroup.com Address: 99 Summer Street, 13th Floor, Boston, MA 02110 Telephone: (617) 357-5200 “I believe my profession now is certainly more receptive to women than ever before, but challenges do still exist. While issues such as maternity leave and child care still present challenges for women, and are still the cause of discrimination in hiring and throughout the course of employment, laws protecting women’s rights continue to further the cause and allow women to gain an equal foothold in my profession and many others. I think that continuing the establishment of new laws protecting women’s rights and vigilance in the enforcement of existing laws, combined with sensitivity training will continue to advance the ability of women to be treated equally. “Amongst multiple efforts to help advance other women in my profession, I take great pride in the fact that I proudly employ many female attorneys and I also am ardent supporter of the Women’s Bar Association of Massachusetts, an organization that is committed to achieving the full and equal participation of women in the legal profession and in a just society.” The Wagner Law Group has grown healthily over the past 12 months, as it has since Marcia founded it 20 years ago. Marcia attributes her success, first and foremost, to hard work and diligence - both her own and that of her colleagues. “I also attribute my success to the unending desire to be the foremost recognised expert in the field, and with surrounding myself with other attorneys who are also recognized as such. I am a summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Cornell University, and a graduate of Harvard Law School and have practiced law for over 28 years. I was appointed to the IRS Tax Exempt & Government Entities Advisory Committee, and ended my three-year term as the Chair of its Employee Plans subcommittee, and received the IRS’ Commissioner’s Award. I am widely recognized as an expert in a variety of employee benefits issues and executive compensation matters, including qualified and non-qualified retirement plans, all forms of deferred compensation, and welfare benefit arrangements. “For the past five years I have been listed by 401k Wire as one of its 100 Most Influential Persons in the 401(k) industry, and I have received the Top Women of Law Award in Massachusetts, and am listed among the Top 50 Women Lawyers in New England. I have written hundreds of articles and 15 books, and I am widely quoted in business publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Pension & Investments, InvestmentNews and more, as well as being a frequent guest on FOX, CNN, Bloomberg, NBC and other televised media outlets. “My goals for my career are to continue to be recognized as the nation’s top expert in my area of expertise and to continue to steadily grow my law firm with other recognized experts in the field. I also endeavour, as the firm grows, to continue providing our existing clients with the personalized and expert legal advice, that has become the hallmark of our firm, and to gain new clients in need of those unique services by further solidifying our position as the country’s finest ERISA and employee benefits law firm.”
