As with our other business clients, we help cemetery operators anticipate, address, and resolve those challenges, enabling them to continue their important role with the families and communities they serve.
We’ve become well known for our work with financially troubled cemeteries throughout Michigan. Mark Zausmer has acted as conservator for such entities, advising and counseling management regarding
Cemetery Commissioner v Albion Memory Gardens, et al.
Mr. Zausmer and a team of ZAC attorneys jumped in to manage the operation of these cemeteries and to begin the efforts to recover over $60 million in missing trust funds. Despite significant financial challenges, all of the cemeteries were able to keep their gates open during this crisis, testament to our prudent management and cooperative relationship with state regulators and the supervising court. By mid-2008, Mr. Zausmer had overseen the sale of the cemeteries to a reputable operator as well as the recovery of millions of dollars for the cemeteries’ trust funds.
Cemetery Commissioner v Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens, et al.
