ATLANTA – Nov. 27, 2018 – Shareholder Todd D. Wozniak, of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, was named a 2018 Law360 MVP for Benefits. Law360’s MVP series showcases standout attorneys who have had significant client wins and contributions to their practice area in the last year.
Co-Chair of the firm’s ERISA & Employee Benefits Litigation group, Wozniak has tried more than 40 cases or arbitrations to verdict. He is one of the few attorneys in the U.S. who has substantial experience handling traditional labor disputes and collective bargaining, employment litigation, and ERISA litigation; has tried complicated employment and employee benefits cases to judges and juries; and has defended dozens of class and collective actions. Wozniak is a frequent lecturer and writer in the employment benefits space and a go-to attorney for colleagues, peers, and clients. Wozniak’s recent work includes a historic settlement in a putative Employee Stock Ownership (ESOP) class action (Hoover v. Brijon Management) where the district court certified the non-opt out settlement class and awarded no damages or attorneys’ fees to plaintiffs and their counsel.
In addition to his active practice, Wozniak is dedicated to his community. He is an active board member of the Special Olympics of Georgia, Inc. (SOGA). For nearly 20 years, Wozniak has supported the organization in some capacity from pro bono work to fundraisers to attending SOGA sporting events and presenting athletes with their medals. He is currently a member of SOGA’s board of directors.
According to Law360, those selected as a 2018 MVP have “distinguished themselves from their peers by securing hard-earned successes in high stakes litigation, complex global matters and record-breaking deals.” Wozniak is one of three Greenberg Traurig attorneys recognized as a 2018 Law360 MVP. Greenberg Traurig’s Marc Mukasey and Lori Cohen were recognized under the publication’s White Collar and Life Sciences categories, respectively.
