Our Trusts & Estates group has been a focus of the firm since it was founded over 40 years ago. We understand that planning in today’s economic and legal climate poses dynamic and threatening challenges to those individuals and families with significant wealth. Issues such as business succession, estate and gift tax, generation-skipping transfer tax, asset protection, charitable giving and income tax all need to be addressed and consistently reviewed in this ever-changing area of law. All of the attorneys in our Trusts & Estates group have a Master’s of Law in Taxation, which provides a necessary foundation to implementing sophisticated techniques that are customized for each of our clients.
Instruments and Techniques
We understand that each client has different goals and problems, and that there is not one singular plan that will work for each client. Our attorneys use a wide variety of instruments and techniques in creating each unique client plan.
