The Wagner Law Group said Wednesday that it is opening a Washington office on Jan. 1, staffed with three attorneys that specialize in the IRS, the Department of Labor and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.
Marcia Wagner, managing director of the firm who’s an expert on the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and a vocal advice giver on the DOL’s fiduciary rule, said in announcing the new office opening that “It is only fitting that a growing law firm at the forefront of some of the most complicated legal and regulatory landscapes, opens an office in our nation’s capital, and we are truly honored and excited to be able to do so with a staff of outstanding attorneys.”
Partners Dan Brandenburg and David Pickle as well as Seth Gaudreau, an associate, along with support staff will run the Washington office.
Brandenburg represents clients regularly before the IRS, DOL and PBGC, and counsels clients with respect to the IRS and DOL voluntary compliance programs and audits and investigations initiated by the IRS, DOL and PBGC.
Pickle specializes in all aspects of ERISA Title I provisions, including prohibited transactions and exemptions and reporting and disclosure rules, and advises clients with respect to investment management services, investment transactions, mergers and acquisitions and DOL investigations.
Gaudreau, who will be relocating from the firm’s Boston office, conducts legal research and drafts memoranda and briefs for ERISA- and employment-related cases and coordinates the electronic filing of case materials. He also prepares ERISA-related governmental filings and is active in the firm’s privacy and security law practice.
The Wagner law group has six offices and 27 attorneys, providing advice to its clients—which include large, small and nonprofit corporations as well as individuals and government entities — in more than 45 states and several foreign countries.
