Trust and Estates Attorney Natalie Perry Joins Barnes & Thornburg’s Chicago Office
Barnes & Thornburg LLP has added Natalie Perry to its Chicago office as a partner in the Corporate Department. Perry focuses her practice on estate, gift and income tax planning, and business succession planning.
Inn a release, the firm said Perry, who also is a Certified Public Accountant, represents high net worth families and business owners and advises on asset protection strategies, tax planning and wealth transition, and the formation and administration of private foundations and charitable trusts. She also has extensive experience with contested estate and trust administration matters that involve disputes among beneficiaries and advised trustees.
“Natalie works with families and closely held businesses on estate and corporate planning issues that range from the routine to the complex,” said Mark Rust, managing partner of Barnes & Thornburg’s Chicago office. “She will play an instrumental role in further developing the sophisticated services that we deliver to private clients in the Midwest and across the country.”
Earlier in her career, Perry served as a wealth adviser for JPMorgan’s Private Bank, where she assisted business owners with succession planning. In 2016, Perry was elected to the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel, where Fellows are chosen based on their professional reputation, exceptional skill and substantial contributions to the field through lecturing, writing, teaching and bar activities.
Perry earned her J.D. from DePaul University College of Law and her bachelor’s degree from Indiana University. Perry was previously at Ice Miller.
