Overview

We understand that the professional trustee operates an ongoing business that depends on its reputation and public perception, and we are proud of our ability to help enhance those values. Working with professional fiduciaries to recognize and manage their risks, we represent banks, including trust departments, in all types of state and federal regulatory matters. For example, when the state of Ohio rewrote its banking and trust law, it relied on one of our banking lawyers as its special counsel.

We bring our experience in banking law and litigation to the service of professional fiduciaries. When a dispute arises, our assistance may help the fiduciary resolve it without litigation. When litigation is unavoidable, we can help protect the trustee’s position. We help the fiduciaries adopt strategies suited for their individual circumstances, whether that strategy involves working quietly in the background or assuming a more visible position.
