The Board of Regents of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC) has named Adam W. Randle, a shareholder at national law firm Polsinelli, a Fellow of the prestigious organization. ACTEC is a national organization of approximately 2,600 lawyers across the U.S. elected to membership by demonstrating the highest levels of integrity, commitment to the profession, and competence and experience as trust and estate counselors.  

“Our attorneys are dedicated to excellence in both the overall profession of law, as well as their individual practice areas,” Randy Gerber, managing director of the St. Louis office of Polsinelli said. “The appointment of Adam to this prominent and well-respected association is a demonstration of the respect he has earned from his colleagues, as well as the level of service he provides to his clients on a daily basis.”  

With more than a decade of client experience, Adam W. Randle focuses his practice on wealth planning and administration. He received his law degree from Saint Louis University in 2003, where he was a member of the Order of the Woolsack. Randle graduated, magna cum laude, from Eastern Illinois University in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science degree. A member of the bar associations of Missouri and Illinois, Randle was admitted to the U.S. Tax Court in 2004.  

ACTEC and its Fellows file amicus briefs in appropriate cases, testify before Congress, provide in-depth analysis of administrative positions to the Internal Revenue Service, assist in the development of best practices for trust and estate lawyers, and participate actively in the development of the recommendations being promulgated by the international Financial Action Task Force.

Established in 1949, all ACTEC members have made substantial contributions to the field of trusts and estates law through writing, teaching and bar leadership activities. The members work together in a collegial manner to enhance their ability to provide the most efficient and highest quality services to their clients; develop qualified trust and estate counselors; improve and reform probate, trust and tax laws, procedures, and standards of professional responsibility; and cooperate with bar associations and other organizations with similar missions. 

Membership in ACTEC is by election of the regents of the College. Individual lawyers meeting the criteria for membership are nominated for membership by fellows of the College, and are subjected to careful review by both state and national membership selection committees, prior to consideration by the regents of the College.
