Law firm Fulbright and Jaworski has added Glen Eichelberger as a partner in its trusts and estates practice.
Eichelberger joins Fulbright from Merrill Lynch, where he served as the head of the family office services, a division of Merrill Lynch’s private banking and investment group.
“Glen has a strong track record in trusts and estates and brings experience as a lawyer and trusted client advisor across a variety of financial and legal issues,” says Steven B. Pfeiffer, the chair of Fulbright’s executive committee.
With almost 20 years of experience, Eichelberger’s practice is dedicated exclusively to wealth transfer planning. He focuses on complex estate and philanthropic planning for clients of substantial wealth.
Eichelberger also has experience educating clients on available estate planning options and techniques, overseeing the implementation of client estate plans and managing the ongoing administration of all aspects of such plans.
Additionally, he has a solid background in overall risk management and insurance planning, family business entity consulting, philanthropic planning and administration.
Fulbright’s trust and estates practice group handles a wide range of legal matters for private clients involving tax-sensitive estate planning and estate administration, trust administration, charitable gift planning, advice for charitable organisations and related planning and litigation matters.
“Fulbright’s highly regarded trusts and estates practice together with its focus on client service made it the right next step,” Eichelberger says. “I am proud to join such a distinguished team of lawyers who share my desire to provide counsel and service, which exceeds client expectations.”
