His work included writing and editorial management of Mealey’s Litigation Reports: Insurance, Cyber Tech, Asbestos, Toxic Torts, Construction Defects, Reinsurance, Insurance Insolvency, Emerging Securities, Emerging Drugs & Devices, and many others (all still published today by LexisNexis).

As publisher of Mealey Publications Inc., Hagy launched Mealey’s Conferences. In 2000, LexisNexis acquired the business from its founder and Hagy’s mentor, Mike Mealey. While vice president at LexisNexis, Hagy continued to manage Mealey Publications, developed litigation content and lead a team to create two dozen websites which featured free news and commentary, blogs, podcasts, videos and myriad legal resources. Hagy also has served as vice president of the Specialized Information Publishers Association. Hagy formed HB to transform the Mealey’s Conferences business into a multimedia legal education conglomerate that offers programs, products and custom services to law firms and in-house counsel. In addition to running HB, Tom drums with a band that sometimes calls itself Johnny Feedback & The Gluttons For Punishment. He and his wife, Jane, have two spirited daughters, Jacy and Annie.
