NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal 1031 Exchange Services, LLC ("Legal 1031"), a division of Kensington Vanguard National Land Services ("KV"), one of the leading title insurance and settlement agencies in the United States, today announced the promotion of James T. Walther, Esq., LL.M. to the position of General Counsel.

KV recently completed an acquisition of Legal 1031, the largest independent 1031 exchange services provider in the Eastern United States and merged the company with its qualified intermediary, KV 1031 Exchange, a transaction that significantly expanded KV's presence in the 1031 exchange industry and creates an enormous growth opportunity for the company.

In addition, he will continue to be a resource to Legal 1031's clients and their advisors for 1031 exchange transactions ranging from basic to extremely complex. 

Prior to working for Legal 1031, James worked for a Philadelphia law firm where he advised and represented clients in a wide array of legal matters, including real estate matters, commercial litigation, and employment matters.  James received an LL.M. in Taxation (Master of Laws) from Temple University's Beasley School of Law with an accompanying Certificate in Employee Benefits. He received his JD from Rutgers School of Law and received a BA in Political Science from Stonybrook University.  James is also a Certified Real Estate Continuing Education Instructor in the State of New Jersey. 

Todd R. Pajonas, President of Legal 1031 stated, "James' skill, diverse legal experience, and Master of Laws in Taxation, make him a perfect fit for this position."

Matt Scheriff, Executive Vice President of Legal 1031, added, "Our goal to expand Legal 1031's footprint nationally requires a strong General Counsel.  We believe that James is the right person to help Legal 1031 achieve its goals."
