About Bret Keisling

Bret Keisling is a founder and Managing Director of Capital Trustees, LLC. Bret first became involved in the ESOP community in 2008 while serving as outside counsel to a privately-owned, 50-employee company that became a 100% ESOP.  After concluding the transaction, Bret was recruited to join the company first as Senior Vice President & General Counsel, and then as President.

While president of the multi-state, multi-million dollar employee-owned distribution company, Bret became active in the ESOP community and is a strong proponent of the benefits of employee ownership.

In early 2012, Bret left the employee-owned company and formed The Keisling Law Offices, which focused primarily on business and real estate transactions and litigation. He has been licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania since 2005 and in Maryland since 2006. He was admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court in 2009.

Bret is a member of The ESOP Association and NCEO.
