General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer
Rob has worked as a lawyer in private practice, as a trust officer, in securities compliance and as a fiduciary consultant. Given his dual role at LNWM, he’s often tasked with finding strategic solutions to complex problems.
As general counsel, Rob has just one client — LNWM. And he serves that client best by making sure the entire company follows the rules, including keeping all client information private. But regulatory compliance is only part of Rob’s job. His legal work crosses into nearly every aspect of the company, including agreements with you as the client, examinations and audits, trust and estate document interpretations, and contracts with outside vendors.
Training staff in rules and regulations might sound dull, but not when Rob’s team is involved. We know people learn best when they’re engaged, he says. So we mix things up with games, competitions and videos. “It helps that people at LNWM genuinely want to do the very best they can, and they care about doing it right for every client.”
