Thomas Peckham "does complicated estate and tax planning," says a source. A lawyer recalls Peckham as being "superb," continuing: "He's super technical and has done a really terrific job of being a can-do lawyer and figuring out how to make a transaction work. He's been involved in high-conflict situations where he has had great diplomatic skills. He's been able to bring people together by very methodically figuring out the points of common interest." An adviser summarises: "He's one of the giants of this area of law. The client we share trusts him 100% and for good reason: he's a very good lawyer."
