Pendleton Square Trust Company, which has an office in downtown Chattanooga, hosted a dinner with Greg Gonzales, commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Financial Institutions, which was held during the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel National Meeting.
In attendance were estate and trust attorneys from across the country, several of whom are active in Tennessee trust reform. The commissioner commented on the favorable trust laws of Tennessee and how a collaborative approach is used with out of state attorneys and families when establishing new trusts in the state.
Commissioner Gonzales has been instrumental in the efforts to make Tennessee a national leader for trusts.
“Trust companies like Pendleton play an important role in highlighting the strong economic environment in Tennessee and the emergence of Tennessee as an important trust jurisdiction,” said Commissioner Gonzales. “Our Department looks forward to continuing to partner with financial institutions to serve the economic needs of customers in Tennessee and beyond.”
