New York – December 29, 2005 – LAWFUEL – Best for law news – Loeb & Loeb LLP announced a major expansion of its Trusts and Estates practice with the addition of partners Lanny A. Oppenheim and C. Michael Spero, associate Jennie E. Mooney, and fiduciary administrators Deanna Lerner, Malka Shafran and Ilene Turk. The group was previously at Salans in New York.

Mr. Spero and Mr. Oppenheim have substantial experience in all aspects of estate
practice, including estate planning and administration. Mr. Spero, who was formerly
chairman of Salans’ trusts and estates group in New York, is a member of the
American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC). Mr. Oppenheim also practices
in the areas of executive counseling and employment law, representing executives in
the negotiation of employment and severance agreements. He is retained by several
major US companies as principal personal planning advisor to their senior
management.

“We are very fortunate to have such highly experienced and well-respected
practitioners joining us,” said Bruce Wexler, chair of Loeb & Loeb’s National Tax
and Wealth Services Section. “They are a great fit for our Trusts and Estates group
and will enhance other practice areas of our firm.”

“This move is right for us and for our clients,” said Mr. Spero. “We wanted to be
part of a strong, national trusts and estates group with the quality and credibility
to support the continued expansion of our practice.”

British MP George Galloway and his opponent the Daily Telegraph will leave no stone unturned to sort out what could be a spectacular libel case.
