When the renown and acclaimed Tulsa law firm of Fry & Elder moved into the Robert G Fry Jr. Center for Trial Studies in the fall of 2015 much of the reason for the move was because the firm had simply outgrown its previous downtown Tulsa offices. Another significant contributing factor, however, in why the firm relocated to their current state of the art 5,200-square foot facility, which features 13 offices and two conference rooms, was because the office would give the firm enhanced space for conferences and Continuing Legal Education (CLE opportunities).
Fry & Elder trial lawyers have made good use of the facility, and partner James R. Elder was the latest to do so. Elder helped usher in the New Year by holding the first CLE presentation of 2017 at the Robert G Fry Jr. Center for Trial Studies earlier this week.
His presentation, titled “Protecting Assets: Primer on Prenuptial Agreements,” centered on what has long been a touchy yet often necessary family law service in Oklahoma and other parts of the country.
“Prenuptial Agreements are becoming more prevalent as people learn they can govern much of the result in a Dissolution case,” Elder said. “It also serves to shorten the proceedings since many otherwise disputed issues are eliminated from the litigation.”
The entire Fry & Elder staff of attorneys and other personnel attended Tuesday’s presentation.
“Mr. Elder did an amazing job with his presentation to the F&E team on the importance of prenuptial agreements,” fellow Fry & Elder partner M. Shane Henry said. “This is yet another example of how F&E is dedicated to improving each day so that we can achieve the very best results for our clients.”
