The Team

The management team works in a closely coordinated manner, each backing up and overlapping the others to provide the optimum balance of skill, experience and economy. While each executive┬╣s management focus is mentioned, all normally deal with multiple aspects of any given case. Typically, in cases with extraordinary staffing needs, in terms of expertise, head count or location, we utilize an extensive network of professionals, including other fiduciaries, bankers, and attorneys, with whom we have had considerable experience to supplement our permanent team.
