Representing Trust Departments

An important aspect of our legal services to banks involves serving bank trust departments. These departments act as executors or trustees when named in wills or trusts. In many cases, our firm's attorneys drafted the will or created the trust and have a detailed understanding of the provisions of the instrument. We are then able to provide sound counsel to banks named as executors and fiduciaries.
