The company has performed services on assets valued in excess of $8 billion dollars nationwide, including fully staffed offices in Sacramento, CA, Denver, CO and Tampa, Florida plus a field due diligence operation (during the late 1980’s and 90’s to service federal engagements). Fiduciary appointments and services have been provided in both Federal and State Court, and for government agencies including the FADA, FSLIC, FDIC and RTC.
