Day Pitney recently brought together family office thought leaders, clients, and friends from the legal, accounting, and financial industries to its annual invitation-only Palm Beach Family Office Forum. The interactive forum covered current issues, challenges, and opportunities that impact the financial health, longevity, and success of family offices.
The event, which was held on May 10 and 11 at the Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, hosted family office principals, executives, family members, entrepreneurs, business owners, investors, and their advisors. Day Pitney Partner R. Scott Beach, Chair of the firm's Corporate and Business Law department and head of its Family Office practice, served as Master of Ceremonies. The keynote speakers were Meghan Shue, Head of Investment Strategy & Portfolio Construction of Wilmington Trust, and Don Peebles, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of The Peebles Corporation.
"Our team works collaboratively in serving our family office clients in all aspects of their operations, tax and estate planning and investment activities, which is in part what led us to put together the Forum. Our aim for these events is to provide insightful content and thought leadership in a unique forum for our attendees to exchange ideas, share opportunities, and build a dynamic investment ecosystem," said Beach. "We have been truly thrilled by the success of this event and are delighted to offer our clients and friends of the firm this significant opportunity to connect with their peers while participating in world-class programming that highlights the significant opportunities and challenges family offices and their constituents face."
