Tom Greene
Partner
The Wagner Law Group

 

BOSTON – The New England Legal Foundation (NELF – www.newenglandlegal.org), the leading legal advocate for free enterprise and innovation in the region, has appointed Tom Greene to its Massachusetts Advisory Council.

Tom is a partner at the Wagner Law Group’s Boston office and specializes in Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation.  Prior to joining the Wagner Law Group, Tom was a partner at Mintz Levin, Holland & Knight, and a boutique law firm in which he was a named partner and oversaw the Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation practice.

Tom focuses his practice on the design, development and implementation of executive compensation arrangements and employee benefit plans. This often includes stock incentive plans, bonus plans, deferred compensation programs, Supplemental Executive Retirement Plans (SERPs), employment agreements, equity-based compensation packages, severance arrangements, and tax-qualified retirement and welfare plans.

Tom has extensive experience advising clients on compliance with the Internal Revenue Code and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), fiduciary duties, bankruptcy, and mergers and acquisitions.  This experience includes working with clients on the Affordable Care Act, HIPAA, negotiating service agreements, prohibited transactions and listed transactions.  His practice also involves counseling nonprofit, tax-exempt, governmental entities and their respective executives on benefits and compensation matters, including intermediate sanctions (rules limiting compensation at non-profits, tax-exempts, universities, colleges and secondary schools).

NELF President Dan Winslow congratulated Tom on his appointment and noted, “We are rebuilding our Advisory Councils in each of the New England states, and adding a lawyer of Tom Greene’s stature and talent to our Massachusetts Advisory Council sets the gold standard for our future appointments. We are excited to have Tom as his law firm’s representative on our Council.”
