Robert BartonWhistler Partners is pleased to announce the placement of Robert Barton as Partner in McDermott Will & Emery's Private Client Practice Group in their Los Angeles office. His practice focuses on controversies involving complex trusts and estates and fiduciary matters for ultra-high-net-worth individuals and families, charitable institutions, corporate trustees and private professional fiduciaries.

Neil Kawashima, Global Head of McDermott's Private Client Practice Group, said that "Robbie is exactly the kind of dynamic professional we have been looking for,... His deep understanding of fiduciary litigation matters and potent advocacy skills will complement our practice and bolster the services we offer to our clients. He checks all the boxes, and we're excited about the value he will bring to clients on the West Coast and nationwide."

The placement was led by Karen Shafrir Vladeck, Managing Director at Whistler Partners, who said that "beyond being an incredible litigator, Robert is also a thought-leader in the trust and estates space, serving as the editor-in-chief of the California Lawyer's Association's Trust's and Estates Quarterly, and publishing on cutting-edge topics like the administration of estates and trusts holding digital assets. McDermott, which has the leading private client practice in the US, was a natural fit and I couldn't be happier to have made the match."
