PITTSBURGH, PA, January 22, 2024. The law firm of Tucker Arensberg, P.C., one of the premier law firms in Pittsburgh with offices in Harrisburg, New York, Cleveland, Beaver, and the San Francisco Bay Area*, is pleased to announce the expansion of our Estates & Trusts group with the addition of R. Douglas DeNardo as a Shareholder attorney.

Doug is a seasoned attorney, specializing in wealth transfer, asset protection, shale gas, and community service. With over 35 years of expertise, Doug passionately counsels individuals, professionals, and owners of closely-held businesses and professional corporations in developing comprehensive strategies to meet clients’ wealth transfer goals, both from a tax and non-tax perspective.

Doug has been a key player in addressing the complexities arising from the shale gas exploration boom, assisting landowners in estate and income tax planning for lease bonuses and royalty payments, with a special emphasis on multigenerational planning.

In 1998, Doug was elected as a Fellow of the highly esteemed American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC). ACTEC membership is based on professional reputation, expertise in the fields of trusts and estates, and the individual’s substantial contributions to these fields through lecturing, writing, teaching, and bar activities. Doug is still an active ACTEC member today. Additionally, Doug has also earned recognition as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer every year since 2004. He holds an AV Preeminent™ rating by Martindale Hubbell, a testament to his high ethical standards and professional excellence.
