THE LATEST NEWS OUT OF OUR ST.
June 29, 2017
Thomas E. Clark Jr., who leads the St. Louis
office of The Wagner Law Group, has been invited to participate on a
special panel of elite ERISA
attorneys at the NAPA DC Fly-in Forum on July 18th.
Tom will join other panelists to discuss trends in ERISA litigation,
with an additional focus on compliance with the Best Interest
Contract Exemption. The conference, in its fifth year, is an
invitation-only event for the nation's highest-performing advisors.
The best-of-the-best in the industry will look to Tom and his fellow
panelists for guidance in helping their clients avoid litigation as
they implement the Department of Labor's fiduciary rule.
background makes him the perfect choice to discuss the intersection
of ERISA litigation and compliance best practices. He gained a unique
perspective representing plan participants during his tenure at
Schlichter, Bogard & Denton, a plaintiff's firm that filed the
first modern excessive fee case in 2006 and over 30 since.
There, Tom worked on landmark cases involving complicated ERISA
fiduciary duties, such as Tibble v. Edison. As a
result of that experience, combined with his technical knowledge in
one of the most complicated areas of the law, Tom is regularly
retained by top service providers and plan sponsors to provide
guidance on how to mitigate their fiduciary risk. Recently,
Tom's session at the Plan Sponsor Council of America's National
Conference in Chicago was standing room only, and he received a rave
review in a recent video from the
"Retireholi(k)s" of the TPA firm Plan Design Consultants,
Inc. (full video may be seen by clicking here).
Wagner Law Group is currently celebrating the growth of our St. Louis
office. Tom was recently made a partner, and the branch has moved to
a new office in the suburb of Webster Groves, where the potential to
grow is in line with our vision to offer the highest quality of legal
services at reasonable rates, combining personalized attention,
sophisticated solutions, and best practices for our clients, large
