February 1, 2018

 

Attorney Mark Poerio Joins our Washington, D.C. Office

 

 

 

We are delighted to welcome well-known executive compensation attorney Mark Poerio, who has joined our firm as a partner, effective as of February 1, 2018. Mark's unique and in-depth knowledge of the business, securities, accounting and tax issues relating to executive

compensation fits wonderfully within our firm's position as the nation's most reliable and outstanding source of counsel in one of the most complicated areas of the law.

 

Mark, who will be based in our exceptional Washington, D.C. office, has 30 years of experience focused on equity compensation plans, performance-based incentives, employment agreements, golden parachute, mergers and acquisitions, change in control, and severance matters (both individualized and broad-based). His clients cover a broad spectrum, including major public companies, companies owned by private equity, closely-held corporations and tax exempt organizations.

 

Mark serves as President of the esteemed American College of Employee Benefit Counsel, an invitation-only organization of nationally recognized employee benefits lawyers for which seven of our firm's attorneys are now members, and he is an executive board member of the American Benefits Council. Mark has taught graduate level courses at Georgetown University Law Center on ESOPs, on the business and securities aspects of executive compensation, and on complex strategies for tying restrictive covenants and trade secret protections to different forms of executive pay. Associated with those classes is his substantively rich website and blog

 

Mark graduated with honors from both the University of Virginia and Cornell Law School, and for 20 years he has served as pro bono counsel to the Maryland Association of Social Service Boards - creating a grass roots foundation that has raised over $1 million to support programs protecting children and vulnerable adults.

 

Mark can be reached by email at: MPoerio@wagnerlawgroup.com.
