June 15, 2015 (Florence, KY) – Frost Brown Todd (FBT) is pleased to announce the relocation of Patricia (Trish) Kirkwood Burgess to the firm’s Florence office, after nine years of serving as a member in the Lexington, Kentucky, location. Burgess is a native of Northern Kentucky with strong ties in the region.
“It’s very exciting to be back in this area where I grew up, was educated all the way from grade school through law school, and still have many close connections. I look forward to serving this community the same way I have served clients and the wider community in Lexington,” she says.
As a trusted legal adviser for more than 20 years, Burgess places great emphasis on understanding all aspects of her clients’ businesses to focus not only on legal issues, but also the practical implications of those issues on their businesses and lives. She practices in business and commercial litigation, and bankruptcy and reorganization law, and helps individuals and companies of all sizes navigate financial difficulties and legal issues to reach innovative, cost-effective and efficient solutions. She is a member of the Kentucky, Ohio and American Bar Associations, and of the American Bankruptcy Institute. She received a bachelor’s degree from Thomas More College in 1991, and her law degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1994.
Burgess joins 12 other legal professionals as the only female member in FBT’s Florence office. The team is led by member-in-charge Wm. T. (Bill) Robinson III, who served as the 135th President of the American Bar Association. The attorneys in the office serve in community leadership roles throughout the region for companies and organizations such as the Kenton County Airport, Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Redwood School and Rehabilitation Center and The Kentucky Symphony Orchestra.
