Jacki Badal

Jacki Badal

General Counsel and Corporate Secretary

Jacki is ideally suited to be our firm’s attorney, bringing with her years of experience working at a big law firm, an investment firm, and a prominent private investment office. What attracted Jacki to LNWM? Our relentless focus on “getting it right” for each of our clients, which she says arises from how we’re structured: The fact that we are owned by a seventh-generation family who are also clients and our employees; our fiduciary obligation as a registered investment adviser (RIA) and trust company; and our long history as trustee for multigenerational families.

Jacki’s work touches on nearly every aspect of our operations, including corporate risk management, client agreements, trust and estate document interpretations, and contracts with outside vendors. She also advises our Board of Directors. “It makes my work easier knowing that people at LNWM genuinely want to do the very best they can, and they care about doing it right for every client.”

Jacki has long been involved with nonprofits that promote diversity in the legal profession and provide legal support for underrepresented communities. Outside of work, she is an avid snowboarder and ice hockey fan.
