This prestigious award is bestowed annually on individuals who generate original ideas designed to simplify the complex employee benefits laws. Mr. Poerio is receiving this award for his proposal (reproduced here) to enable 401(k) plan and IRA participants to purchase annuities in a cost-effective manner, without burden to employers. “Throughout his career, Mark has distinguished himself as an outstanding attorney in our field. We are honored to call him a colleague, and we wish him tremendous congratulations,” says Marcia Wagner, the firm’s founder and Managing Partner.

Mr. Poerio has arranged to use his award proceeds to provide seed funding for separate annual Social Justice Awards that bar associations in Washington (DC), Annapolis (MD), and Charleston (SC) will launch in 2021. Public support for these awards will be critical. Those wishing to receive further information may contact Mr. Poerio at mpoerio@wagnerlawgroup.com.
