Thomas has served as general counsel for the Contursi family as a trusted business and legal advisor since 2013. Thomas focuses his legal practice on corporate transactional matters related to the family enterprise. This includes the core family business, direct investments in the wine industry, and other real estate investments. As the gatekeeper for the family office, Thomas also works closely with our team of outside experts on estate planning, advanced tax strategy, and specialized legal matters, to name a few.
While conducting legal business for the Contursi family, Thomas spent years gleaning knowledge about rare coins as an asset class. He was blown away with the utility the asset provided and saw many opportunities for growth. Based on his passion to promote this message and his relationship of over 25 years with the Contursi family, he was promoted to become a partner in the U.S. rare coin business. He works exclusively with non-collectors interested in establishing a relationship with the Contursi family. In this regard, Thomas is one of the leading authorities in the country on U.S. rare coins as an asset class.
In his spare time, he enjoys studying (and drinking) wine and playing pick-up basketball as he travels between New York City, Napa, and his hometown, Laguna Beach.
