Adam M. Trenk


Adam M. Trenk practices in the areas of public policy, zoning, aviation, equine and business law, and works as a strategist consulting across multiple industries on matters of government relations and corporate development.

Mr. Trenk attended Arizona State University where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship from the W.P. Carey School of Business (2005). After graduating he launched a career in real estate, working for the real estate investment firm and then branched out on his own as a real estate property asset consultant, while investing in and managing his own investment properties and pursuing his education.

Adam went on to earn a Masters of Real Estate Development (2007) and then his Juris Doctorate (2010) from Arizona State University. In law school, Adam built his curriculum around alternative dispute resolution and real property law.

Adam has been active in his community, serving as a board member for the Cave Creek Merchant’s Chamber of Commerce and sitting on the Citizen’s Advisory Committee to the Town Council prior to making a run for a Council seat himself. Adam was first elected to hold a seat on the Cave Creek Council while he was in law school in 2009, and served as Vice Mayor from 2013 to 2015.

In 2014, recognizing a threat to the helicopter tourism industry in the Greater New York City area, Adam worked to establish the Helicopters Tourism & Jobs Council (http://helicoptertourism.com), organizing industry stakeholders and coordinating a lobbying effort and public relations campaign to ensure the continued viability of the helicopter operators in and around New York City. Adam continues to serve as the executive director of the HTJC today.

Trenk’s work in local government, his experiences practicing as an attorney, and his efforts to develop and preserve business interests in the aviation sector give him a unique perspective. He is able to navigate complex regulatory schemes and negotiate to add value in legislative affairs and transactional matters.

Adam recognizes the importance of giving back to his community. He has been active with the Communication Alliance to Network Thoroughbred Ex-Rachorses (https://www.canterusa.org/), a 501c3 that rehabilitates and rehomes horses off the track. Furthermore, recognizing the importance of education and supporting the industry that helped him develop his work ethic, Trenk serves on the Advisory Board for the Scottsdale Community College Equine Science Program (https://www.scottsdalecc.edu/programs/equine-science).

Adam Trenk has been a lifelong western horsemanship enthusiast. Throughout high school and college, he spent several summers as an apprentice horse trainer in Montana and Idaho. Today he lives in Cave Creek, AZ on his own small horse ranch. His equine law practice includes servicing the wide-ranging legal needs of the equestrian industry, giving him an opportunity to blend the subject matters of his personal passions with his profession.

Adam has been with the Rose Law Group since 2010, and was named partner in 2018.
