Trey Wright knew that attending law school was the right decision when he had the amazing opportunity to see Courtroom 600 at the Palace of Justice in Nuremberg, Germany, the site of the Nuremberg Trials, where Nazi war criminals were prosecuted following World War II. Trey’s grandfather was an MP that guarded Roman Rudenko, the Chief Soviet Prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials who would go on to become Procurator General of the Soviet Union. Additionally, Trey’s background in the maritime industry makes him a valuable member of the SBSB Eastham team. As a graduate research assistant, Trey attended the premier global annual maritime economics conference held in Hong Kong, hearing from industry leaders about critical industry issues.

Trey is recognized by his clients for his attention to detail, work ethic, and personability. His legal career began at SBSB Eastham, where he clerked for two summers during law school. As an associate in the Houston Office, he has been involved in litigation involving sensitive national security information beyond the scope of normal corporate work. Assisting in this, as well as litigation originating in areas such as Asia, the Middle East, Africa, the Pacific, and the Gulf of Mexico helped Trey gain perspective on the industry and an understanding of its most important issues both inside and outside the United States. Trey’s experience with global insurance carriers have shown him the processes and challenges inherent in complex litigation and the steps required to provide his clients the best possible representation.

Helping others is incredibly important to Trey, and this has led him to serve as a volunteer firefighter for the past several years. There, he received the “Rookie of the Year” award among his fellow rookie firefighters and has learned several valuable lessons about teamwork and sacrifice. Additionally, Trey utilizes his professional and academic abilities to assist underserved and at-risk students by volunteering his services to Elevation STEM Texas, a 501(c)3 developer of STEM programs based on flight simulation and marine engineering. Nationally, Trey is a member of the acclaimed Next-Generation Leaders Cohort with the White House Historical Association in Washington D.C., serving as an ambassador for the Association’s nonpartisan mission with events throughout the year in Washington D.C and New York City. In his free time, Trey enjoys traveling, scuba diving, golfing, and SEC football Saturdays in the fall.
