We are proud and pleased to announce that our longtime partner Thomas Haeuser took on a new role at the firm in the new year. Effective January 1, 2022, Tom continues to serve in an advisory capacity, taking a step back from active practice to focus on community activities. Those around town already know Tom for his presence on the Plaza and his unflagging efforts to make our town and the surrounding community a special place for businesses and families to thrive across multiple generations.
Everyone Needs a Good Succession Plan
Tom’s transition, already several years in the planning, is based on a multi-phase succession strategy designed to grow the firm in exciting new directions while preserving its 125-year+ legacy as the oldest law firm in Sonoma county.
An Ongoing Legacy of Community Service
Putting the plan into action and continuing his 47- year trajectory of community service, Tom recently stepped up his roles in two vital community service organizations, Friends Helping Friends (FISH) and the Sonoma County Library Commission. Tom serves as President of the FISH Board of Directors, continuing his longstanding affiliation with an organization that has been lending a helping hand to neighbors in need for 50 years. Tom is also Vice-Chair of the Sonoma County Library Commission, supporting our county-wide library system. Tom will continue to be a presence around town and work his magic behind the scenes at HVP. We appreciate your support of HVP partners and staff as our succession plan unfolds.
