August 30, 2011

WFG National Title Insurance Co. announced that Ed Trope will serve as state underwriting counsel for agents in Virginia and Maryland. Trope will support WFG National Title’s agencies in Maryland and Virginia on underwriting matters. He comes to the company with 33 years of legal experience focusing on the settlement services and real estate industry, most recently as the owner and manager of his own law firm for 11 years. Trope previously spent 10 years as vice president, counsel and agency manager for one of the industry’s largest underwriters, managing operations for the company’s Richmond agency office.

He earned his J.D. at T.C. Williams School of Law, University of Richmond; and holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Virginia. He is a long-time member of the Virginia State Bar and Virginia State Bar Association, as well as the Richmond Bar Association; and is a member in the Real Estate and Business sections of both the Virginia State Bar and Richmond Bar Association. “Ed Trope is recognized in the mid-Atlantic region as an astute attorney and a valued counselor for title agents,” said Thomas Klein, Senior Vice President, Agency, Southeast Region. “Our agents have told us repeatedly that they look to their national underwriters for information and support when the regulatory climate becomes volatile. Our addition of Ed confirms our commitment to collaborate with our independent agencies and support them in whatever ways they need.”
