Levenfeld Pearlstein Welcomes New ACTEC Member
June 30, 2004
The firm welcomes Robert Alan Romanoff as co-chair of its Wealth Transfer Group.
Mr. Romanoff’'s exceptional talent is reflected in his selection by an elite group of peers as a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC). He joins ACTEC regent Donald Glassberg as co-chair of the Wealth Transfer Department at LP. Mr. Romanoff focuses on the design and implementation of sophisticated estate planning techniques in conjunction with business and succession planning. He also has a significant focus in contested administration of trusts, guardianship and decedents’ estates. His clients include high net worth individuals, owners of closely held businesses and family offices.
"“We look for attorneys who are aggressive, responsive, energetic and dynamic Rob is all of those things,"” says LP Chairman Bryan I. Schwartz. “I have found him to be of high moral character, very focused on the quality of work and, most importantly, he embraces built for speed a rarity in estate planning. “
“Rob adds more firepower to our wealth transfer and asset protection planning areas,” adds Glassberg. “We have been searching for a wealth transfer attorney of Rob’s caliber for some time. Our patience has paid off.”
“Leaving my prior firm was a difficult choice since it was an estate planning boutique,” says Romanoff. “LP is focused on real estate, corporate and securities, lending and litigation. Each of these core areas play a significant role in supporting my expanding practice, in addition to a strong wealth transfer and tax culture. I was impressed by the quality of laterals that have gravitated towards LP in the last three years. I have found out why people are flocking to this firm – it is an exciting culture, and it provides a terrific platform for taking my practice to another level.”
In addition to his legal work, Mr. Romanoff is active in several civic organizations. He is an executive member and general counsel of the Midwest Region of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism and an officer and director of Moriah Congregation in Deerfield.
