In the wake of Henry Ekker’s death, the leadership of the Estate Planning and Administration, Tax, and Elder Law practice groups is now being ably provided by partner Wade M. Fisher. Wade joined the firm as an associate in 2004 and was elevated to partnership March 1, 2011. He has extensive experience in all aspects of planning and settling estates, the creation of trusts, personal and corporate taxation, and elder law. Prior to graduating summa cum laude from University of Akron School of Law in 1994, Wade worked for more than ten years as an accountant, and he brings that experience to bear on the problems of structuring and planning for succession in businesses of all sizes. Both his law school and undergraduate education included numerous awards and academic honors attesting to his keen intellect. We are proud to announce his new role in the leadership of the firm.
