Rosenberg joins the firm as “of counsel,” a title given to
an attorney who has a relationship with a law firm or other organization but is
not an associate or a partner. Rosenberg has extensive experience as an ERISA
lawyer, the firm says, and has litigated a wide range of denial of benefit,
breach of fiduciary duty, and class action cases related to retirement plans.
He has also represented and advised company benefit plans on operational issues
impacting participants, plan sponsors and plan advisers.
Rosenberg will be joined at Wagner Law Group by his
associate, Caroline Fiore, with whom he has had a multi-decade working
relationship. Fiore is a commercial and regulatory lawyer with a background in
administrative law, commercial litigation, insurance, class action, employee
benefits and ERISA disputes. She has extensive experience working on cases
involving breach of fiduciary duty and denial of benefit claims under ERISA—including
claims under 401(k), employee stock ownership and disability plans.
Rosenberg and Fiore will work closely with David Gabor, who
was named a new partner at the firm, effective August 1. As partner, Gabor will
be called on to head the firm’s employment and labor law department, as well as
the litigation department. Gabor, who formerly held an of counsel role with the
firm, has long-term experience representing clients in litigation, negotiating
and drafting benefits contracts, and handling compliance issues.
Marcia Wagner, managing director of The Wagner Law Group,
says the new hires are meant to bring “a complimentary set of extremely strong
skills in employment law, human resources, counseling clients and litigation”
to the firm.
